Set hearts soaring with this joyful Christmas cantata based on American folk songs, spirituals, bluegrass-styled carols and original gospel songs. Traditional choral elements dance easily with the rustic qualities of the “mountain” music and the results are pure joy. Designed to be performed either with piano alone or with the unique bluegrass consort, this work is a celebration of light. Even the narration has a gentle folk quality, adding to the dramatic potential of your presentation. Experience the work that, after its Carnegie Hall debut, left New York critics ebullient with praise!

Songs include: Hear the Wondrous Story; The King Shall Come; Star of Promise, Light of Glory; A Morning Star Will Rise; Mary Went a-Riding; O Little Town; Here Comes the Light; A Christmas Answer; A Little Light Was Born.

Score and Parts (fiddle, banjo, mandolin, acoustic guitar, upright bass, drums) available as a Printed Edition and as a digital download.
