Lead Me Back to Bethlehem to witness the joyful exuberance of the shepherds, the serene peace of Mary, and the redeeming love of the newly born Christ child. Lead me back to that wondrous night to experience the utter simplicity of that blessed event and to see the star of holy light, following wherever it leads us. Through his signature style, with its simplicity of means, Pepper Choplin leads us through this Bethlehem story using carols, familiar folk songs with new seasonal texts, and original music and narrative.
The choral parts are exceedingly melodic and sing very easily in either voicing. And no matter the accompaniment option selected to produce this work, the real message of the Christmas story is magnificently yet simply conveyed to both performers and listeners as all are collectively "led back to Bethlehem" to rediscover the joy, peace, and love that Christmas offers to all of us.
