The Birthday of a King by Lloyd Larson. For SATB choir, piano (with optional congregation, orchestration). Sacred Anthem, Christmas. Octavo. Published by Exaltation Publications (LO.10-3461L).
Based on the perennial vocal solo favorite, this setting allows choirs to sing this joyous Christmas classic. Beginning with the tender opening, a gradual crescendo segues into a regal culmination with ADESTE FIDELES. The optional inclusion of congregation makes this a festive addition to any Christmas worship or concert setting. (From the cantata "The Promise of a King" SATB - 65/1954L; SAB - 65/1955L).
