Item Number: 00-9481178
By Lee Dengler and Susan Naus Dengler
Orchestrations by Philip Keveren
"On this shining night, filled with awe and wonder . . . God's gift of love comes down to earth, flooding the world with everlasting Light." The beautiful introductory section of this Christmas cantata leads into the glorious majesty of "O Holy Night," and sets the scene as the shining night when Jesus -- the Light of the World -- was born. The work is woven with newly-composed music and familiar carols, including "Joy to the World!;" "O Come, All Ye Faithful;" "Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow;" "Rocking Carol," and many more. Performance suggestions, including dramatic use of candles and two possible endings for the cantata, are included in the choral book. Accompany with piano and/or organ, chamber orchestration, or the sparkling InstruTrax accompaniment recording.
