1 Samuel 2:18-21, Psalm 111, Luke 2:1-20, Luke 41-52, Colossians 3:12-17.
This dynamic arrangement of Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow begins slowly, with soloist and choir announcing, "There's a star in the east!" Quickly changing gears, the choir sings in lively syncopation, "Rise up!" This is Don Besig and Nancy Price at their a cappella best: solid choral writing with repetitive refrains and great rhythmic vitality. Even smaller choirs will LOVE this Christmas treasure!
