One Small Voice / Une seule voix: Each small voice makes a difference in the world, whether it was one small child many years ago, or one small child helping to fill today's world with song.

Sing, "Gloria"! / Chante "Gloria": A calypso-type offering of the Christmas story. Includes descant vocal line and claves part.

Star Above / Étoile du ciel: A gentle song of hope and peace. Like stars, we can all make the world a brighter place as we share hope and love.
