Sacred Anthem, Christmas.
This festive Mark Hayes creation is the perfect concert opener or closer. It also works well in the midst of any worship or concert setting in which a joyous Christmas anthem is desired. The pulsating 6/8 meter, which begins and concludes the piece, provides impetus to the energetic and rhythmic vocal lines. The occasional meter changes as well as the contrasting and lyric middle section make this a fresh and powerful Christmas proclamation!
