This is a wonderful Cantata for Soprano, Tenor and Baritone soloists with SATB Choir. There is a Piano reduction of the original Orchestral score.
The heart of the text is comprised of poems by writers such as Milton, Hardy and George Herbert. Each of these poems reflect various Christmas experiences while reflecting upon the events of the nativity story, which is recounted as a narration by unison boys. This narration is drawn from the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer.
