Scored for Choir

This 35-minute Christmas musical is a dynamic retelling of the Christmas story divided into four parts: Hope, Love, Peace and Joy. For each section Joel Raney has crafted a musical medley packed with an amazing array of familiar carols sure to appeal to singers and audiences alike. The major themes of Advent and Christmas are all addressed, culminating in an uplifting celebration of the joy of the season. Thoughtful narration and scripture readings appear between each movement. Performance may be done simply with choir, piano and narration, or may be enhanced with instrumental parts for violin, cello, flute, oboe, French horn, organ (or synth), percussion & handbells.
