Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Scored for Organ, SATB Choir

A Christmas Cantata for SATB and Narrator with Harp and Organ

We proudly offer a dramatic, appealing and accessible cantata celebrating the birth of Christ, as seen through the eyes of the elderly patriarch, Simon. The work opens with a gentle and ravishing prelude based on Joseph Dearest, Joseph Mine, performed by organ and harp alone. The narration by Jason Doyle Fairbanks is highly original, but firmly based in scripture reference. The score is filled with well-crafted and exciting arrangements of hymns and carols, climaxing with a joyous, sweeping setting of Adolphe Adam's famous O Holy Night. Other carols include The Snow Lay on the Ground, Coventry Carol, Silent Night, From Heaven Above to Earth I Come and He Is Born. Performance time: approximately 35 minutes.
