Children, go where I send thee. That powerful call--that sending out of a people to share the Christmas story--is the inspiration and the ultimate message of this stirring telling of the gospel tale. Pamela Martin's narrative is filled with inspired scenes highlighting all those who were sent: prophets, angels, Mary and Joseph, shepherds, wise men, and, finally, Christians sent into the world to proclaim the gospel message that a new light is comin'. Lloyd Larson's music is an inventive mixture of spiritual and carol arrangements with newly composed music. His score sparkles throughout, punctuating the call with joyous harmonies and lush melodies. Designed as a flexible resource for the busy church musician, this cantata can be performed in its entirety with one or more readers, choir, soloists, and orchestration by Michael Lawrence; or, it can serve as a source of individual keyboard-accompanied anthems for worship throughout the season.
