"How often have I heard, ‘Why can't they give us beautiful choir music like we used to have?’ Well, here you have the answer. Two choral music legends have teamed up to create a Christmas cantata that fills the bill when it comes to soaring melodies and elegant harmonies, yet is well within the ability of most church choirs. Tom Fettke and Jay Rouse are names that have been trusted by choir directors for many years. City of Hope, the product of their collaboration, combines beloved carols, gorgeous new settings, and creative narration in a Christmas presentation that will be loved and appreciated by choirs and congregations far and wide.”
