But more remarkable than its tall towers, great archways and grand entrance was the legend surrounding the bells. It was the custom on Christmas Eve for all the people to bring to the church their offerings to the Christ-child. And there had been a time when an unusual offering brought magnificent music from the chimes which were rung, everyone believed, by the angels. But lately, no offering had been great enough...that is until young, poor brothers, Pedro and Manuel, make their first pilgrimage through the snow to give their simple gift.This touching story is enhanced with a re-enactment of the nativity by the children's choir. There is a beautiful variety of songs, from the holy "Birthday of a King," to the operatic "I Can Remember When" to the exuberant, "Today Is Born Our Savior". Make this musical a focal point for your glorious holiday celebration.
