Genesis 12:1-3, Psalms 96, Isaiah 9:2-7, Titus 2:11-14, Luke 2:1-20.

Mark Hayes and John Parker have combined their considerable talents to create a unique and spirited Christmas choral with a Celtic flavor. Modal harmonies and driving keyboard accompaniment enhance the excitement. Unison and 2-part voices tell the story, while full choir sings the refrain, "Gloria! Glory be to God on high!" Additional parts for recorder and violin alone, or with bass, drums and synthesizer, and a full performance/accompaniment CD, are available separately. Wonderful for both school holiday concerts and Christmas worship!
Inst. Parts Available (choral); Recorded Acc. Available.

    Our 35-voice SAB choir enjoyed this song immensely. It has wonderful momentum, harmony, and rhythm, and the dynamics are so much fun to sing. We added tin whistle, drums, and bass. One of the most exciting Christmas pieces we have ever performed - for both the choir and the audience...
