About The NEW Songs For EVERY Christmas


Songs For EVERY Christmas is a very special collection of 15 Christmas songs for schools, written for a wide variety of Christmas celebrations - traditional and contemporary - and in a variety of musical styles, from rock to baroque.

This festive songbook is ideal for Christmas concerts, church services and nativity presentations, and will be enjoyed by primary school children of all ages.


About The NEW Songs For EVERY Series

The Songs For EVERY Series was created by Out of the Ark Music co-founders Mark & Helen Johnson and has provided enjoyment and inspiration for many years. These tried and tested songs continue to have a hugely positive impact upon countless schools and children everywhere, and our belief in their values and potential has led us to produce this refreshed and updated version of the series that gives you a whole lot more.

What’s New?

Knowing how much potential there is in these fabulous songs, we’ve added a feast of original and new exciting music activities for you to use alongside them in the new activity songbook. We want to help you to grab hold of EVERY musical possibility contained within each and EVERY song and enjoy the learning opportunities they bring. Additionally, our imaginative ideas pages will open up the thematic content of the songs by linking with the wider curriculum and beyond. Our aim is to provide inroads towards creative music education using material that we know will equip, give confidence and inspire everyone.

All of the titles in the NEW Songs For EVERY Series are now available with Words on Screen™ v2 allowing you to display song lyrics on any whiteboard, computer screen, television or interactive touchscreen. The lyrics synchronize with the music as it plays making them easy to teach and easy to learn!

We have adapted our signs so that they are clear and easy to follow to make them suitable for children so EVERYone can sing and sign our songs!

To license the installation of the CD ROM onto network servers and/or two or more computers, please purchase an Annual Digital Site Licence.


Annual Digital Site Licences

With so many songbooks and audio files purchased in digital format, you need a legal way to install or distribute copies for use around the school. Out of the Ark’s Annual Digital Site Licences are the perfect solution!

Outstanding resource

By Jim

I've been using this book at Christmas time since it first came out. I can honestly say that I've never come across a better Christmas resource book for kids. They have their favourites, and I have mine! We particularly like 'Midnight' and 'No Room at the Inn'! That's just two of many memorable songs, perfect for a primary school Christmas.


We have used many of these songs in a variety of schools and really enjoyed them!

By Hands Outstretched

As a joint Church group we have found these songs really useful for helping to explain the message behind Christmas as we visit a number of schools in our area. They are an appropriate and sensitive bridge between the secular Christmas and the religious themes underlying it. They are also lots of fun!


make it more magical!

By Daii

These songs are extremely catchy, and are wonderful for adding extra song numbers to that special christmas nativity... to make the cellebration even more magical!


Outstandind

By Musical

Excellent variety of fresh, new songs. Caters for all tastes and age groups.


Remarkable!

By Jackarias

This phantasmagorical selection of Christmas-themed songs allows for the most captivating performances at the relevant time of year. Such a concoction of musical styles really helps to highlight the untapped potentials of primary schools nationwide!
