From Joseph Martin comes a cantata that is filled with the wonder and light of Christmas. This imaginative new work uses carols and candlelight to embody the hope of Christ. Featuring orchestration by Brant Adams and narration by Pamela Martin, this cantata empowers a director with many creative performance and programming options. Carols featured include: In the Bleak Midwinter • Silent Night • O Come Little Children • What Child is This? • O Little Town of Bethlehem • and many others. Amazing writing from the acclaimed composer of A World of Christmas and The Winter Rose.

    I have been a major proponent of Martin's work over the years. Some of the finest music for church is found in his catalog. However, as years go by, it seems he values volume over quality. This collection is an example. There are a couple of arrangements that one...

    would love to pluck out, but you can't!! I am not about to spend $8.95 times 90 for my choir, when there are only a couple of pieces I'd want to do. I am frustrated with Martin's artistic laziness lately, cranking out warmed-over arrangements one after the other. In the Fall release of Shawnee Press, there are no less than 22 anthems from him (a couple under the name Michael Barrett - which is Martin), and another cantata. Good grief!

    When 3/4 of your group cannot read music - this cantata works well because the tunes are familiar, but the words are different. The voicing is fairly easy.
