Scored for Piano, SATB Choir

Composers Mary McDonald and Larry Shackley have combined their musical gifts with the inspired lyrics of Pamela Martin to create a captivating thirty-minute cantata for SATB or SAB choirs. In this unique work, the many names of Christ foretold in the Old Testament are used to proclaim the familiar story of Christmas: "Emmanuel, God With Us" brings to life Mary's visit from the angel; "Son of David" depicts the journey to Bethlehem; and "King of Kings" involves the Wise Men and the congregation in worship.
Lovely original melodies stand alongside familiar carols to create a musical experience suitable for churches of all traditions. A simple, scriptural narration joins the seven choral pieces, and an optional joyous instrumental overture sets the stage with a medley of Christmas favorites. The orchestration of this work is within the range of many churches, with the option of using digital keyboard along with a small group of woodwinds, brass, and percussion.
