Text by Joel Raney.
Featuring original music interspersed with familiar carols, this is a thirty-minute musical for SATB choir that re-tells the Christmas story from the vantage point of angels - from Gabriel's first appearance to Zacharias, to the glorious scene of angels filling the heavens singing "Gloria in excelsis Deo!" The range of musical styles reflects the various moods of the angels' scenes, making this a colorful musical tapestry of angel portraits. The program ends on a high note with the congregation joining to sing "Angels We Have Heard on High," and "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing." At thirty-minutes, this work will fit well into a worship service or special program. Accompaniment can be provided by piano, chamber orchestra or CD Track.
