A major work for the Advent and Christmas season. The original text by Terry W. York focuses on the themes of anticipation and revelation. The author creates images of these themes in each of the texts, pointing toward the small dancing light in a manger. Three carol settings that include congregation are included in the work. The music is beautifully orchestrated and may be performed with full orchestra, or an organ may be substituted for the string parts. Duration: 45 minutes

Devotional Guide An additional component is an optional Advent devotional guide that may be used by the congregation throughout the season of Advent. The use of the devotional guide will give added meaning to the congregation. Orders for 50 or more copies qualify for a special quantity discount.

    71 pages to use the word "Jesus". A little disturbing for a Christmas work.
