Love is the central theme of Christmas. The incarnation story tells us that God so loved the world that he came to earth as a Baby, and that love is creatively illustrated in this compelling Christmas work by Joel Raney. The versatile format of this cantata allows it to be performed in its entirety in a single worship setting, or it may be presented around the four traditional themes of hope, peace, joy, and love throughout the Advent season. A rich tapestry of original and familiar melodies, diverse musical styles, accessible choral settings, and engaging accompaniment options combine to ensure a rich and meaningful Christmas worship experience for your congregation. Performance time: approximately 30 minutes.
