ISBN 9781429118514. Orchestrated by Michael Lawrence.

The Heart of Christmas" tells the timeless story that we remember each year in a creative, profound way--by probing the hearts of those most directly involved in St. Luke's account of that first Christmas. This touching construct is complemented by Choplin's masterful use of a variety of musical styles from blues and bluegrass to the warmly melodic and chorally traditional. Three narrators propel the scripture-based narrative, while two or three soloists and optional congregational participation enhance the choir. The result is a musical, worshipful, and very accessible musical presentation. Even those ensembles that often perform SAB editions will find this single choral edition to be well within their reach. We invite you to embrace the courage, faithfulness, joy, and love of those who were there and live in "The Heart of Christmas.

  • December 28, 2013 Moving and Exciting Christmas work

    This is our favorite of several of Pepper's Chistmas cantatas (that we loved). A nice variety of music from bluegrass excitement, to soft and moving, to building and engaging. Each song was special, with great narration to help tell the story. The congregation seemed to catch the excitement of...

    the cantata.
