An atmosphere of mystery, timelessness and joy permeates this moving celebration of new life. Piquant harmonies and understated Latin rhythms create a stunning backdrop for Sophia Fahs' lyrical text, culminating in an affirmation which reaches far beyond Christmas: "Each night a child is born is a holy night - A time for singing, a time for wondering, a time for worshipping." A memorable addition to holiday concerts or worship, or as a celebration of birth.A challenging work requiring a strong pianist and a rhythmically clear conductor, and featuring an etherial soprano solo.Text: For so the children come And so they have been coming. Always in the same way they come born of the seed of man and woman. No angels herald their beginnings. No prophets predict their future courses. No wisemen see a star to show where to find the babe that will save humankind. Yet each night a child is born is a holy night, Fathers and mothers - sitting beside their children's cribs feel glory in the sight of a new life beginning. They ask, "Where and how will this new life end? Or will it ever end?" Each night a child is born is a holy night - A time for singing, A time for wondering, A time for worshipping.
