Using a blend of original and familiar music, Lloyd Larson and Victor Johnson, who are church musicians like you, collaborated on this telling of the Christmas story from the vantage point that God's ways are not typically our ways. Featuring all of the hallmarks of popular cantatas, from beloved carols and a scripturally based narration to opportunities for congregational participation and an optional full orchestration, this work also boasts the distinctive choral writing of two fine composers, an upbeat spiritual movement, and short optional female or male solos. May you welcome "Bethlehem's Child" into your heart and your worship service this season!
