Christmas Choir

December 2016

 

This year’s Christmas Cantata will be “Bethlehem’s Child”, music by Victor C. Johnson and Lloyd Larson.  It consists of a wonderfully arranged collection of eight original musical pieces, all of which include familiar Christmas hymns such as “Angels From the Realms of Glory”; “O Come All Ye Faithful”; “O Come Emanuel”; “Still, Still, Still”; and many more.

Bethlehems Child

As the composers so aptly note “The story of Christmas – God becoming human-is filled with the unlikeliest of elements…the tiny village of Bethlehem…the unlikely couple, Mary and Joseph…the unlikely audience to receive the news: common shepherds…and a new born infant.  As might be expected, many musical styles are employed to encompass these “unlikely” elements.  These include the glorious strains of the opening song, “Come and Worship”; the hopeful expectation of “Waiting and Longing; the joyful and somewhat bluesy spiritual “Run, Shepherds!”; the quiet simplicity of “Cradle Song”; and the festivity of the title song, “Bethelehem’s Child”.
