Last week, Discover Worship debuted "Be Joyful All! — A Christmas Mini-Musical," first of two new and exclusive Christmas works for this year. This week, we'll spotlight the second musical, "A Christmas of Poetry & Song." If there's a common theme between them, it's that they both rely heavily on poetry for narration.
Poignant yet powerful, sentimental yet scriptural, this 35-minute musical features 5 original free-verse poems and Scripture readings interspersed with Christmas anthems, including 7 beloved carols.
For: Adult Choir
Length: 35 minutes/7 songs
Narration: 5 free-verse poems & Scripture readings
The easy to medium difficulty SATB arrangements from Dennis Allen, Kris Crunk. Jeff Lippencott, Russell Mauldin, and Dave Williamson range from lighthearted to majestic and include such beloved favorites as "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear," "The First Noel," "Angels We Have Heard on High," and "O Holy Night." Supplemental instrumental parts are available on two songs.
