Detailed Description

Holy Light: A Candlelight Service of Carols (Choral Score) by Robert A. Hobby (1962-). For SATB choir, soprano voice solo, optional congregation, optional children's choir or treble solo, optional 2-part mixed voices, organ, piano, brass quintet, percussion, handbells or full orchestra. Christmas, Advent. Medium to Moderately Difficult. Choral score. 81 pages. Duration 55 minutes. Published by MorningStar Music Publishers (MN.70-013).

A complete worship service containing scripture readings, meditations by Susan Palo Cherwien, and twelve carols. "Holy Light" was originally conceived as a candle-lighting service (not congregationally as in "Silent Night", but on the altar or in various locations in the Chancel.) Whether or not this concept is utilized, you will find this collection takes a new look at some well-known carols.

Preview Pak including full performance CD Recording and Choral Score available.

Readings by Susan Cherwien are taken from Crossings and From Glory into Glory.
