Twas the night before Christmas... and there was stirring everywhere! Heaven must have been abuzz with excitement as they watched an unexpecting world go about their normal routines, knowing that tomorrow morning EVERYTHING would be different!
It's hard to imagine that REAL night before Christmas, isn't it? That one cold and dark evening when the sky still hovered over the world like a blanket of hopelessness and despair. But oh, what a difference one night can make!

Dynamically arranged and orchestrated by Dove-Award winning producer, J. Daniel Smith, this compelling re-telling of the events leading up to Christ's coming combines carefully crafted SATB choir arrangements, festive orchestrations, and simple narration for an inspiring easy-to-learn and easy-to-perform Christmas musical of hope.
