A Night for Rejoicing
Item Number: 00-9207174
By Lee Dengler and Susan Naus Dengler
"Christmas night---what a glorious night for rejoicing!" This cantata tells the age-old story of Jesus' coming to earth which culminates in that glorious "night for rejoicing." This 35-minute work is scored for choir, congregation, and optional children's choir with keyboard accompaniment. There is also an optional chamber orchestra available for flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, cello, timpani, percussion, and handbells. The eight choral movements, along with prelude and underscore, are replete with familiar carols as well as newly composed music. They are separated by narration that can be presented by one or two readers. This stirring work---which includes delightfully upbeat tunes as well as slow, deeply worshipful pieces---will be a perfect centerpiece for a Christmas worship service.
