    I have been a choir director for most of my 72 years and this compilation of new and familiar Christmas music is the best - and I mean THE BEST - cantata I have ever experienced as director, listener, or singer!!! My choir, most of whom do not read music, worked hard...

    on it and were reluctant to turn in their scores, they love it so much! We presented a public performance and put the 150 who attended in the mood for Christ's coming. Lloyd Larson's collection is nothing less than a masterpiece. I had 4 small soli for a little variety, 2 narrators and an SAB choir with 8 of each voice. It may very well become an annual or bi-annual event. My inexpressible thanks to every composer and/or arranger who contributed to this loving work built around the wonderful Natalie Sleeth anthem. She would be so honoured!!!!
