Through imaginative poetic metaphors in the narrative and engaging yet wonderfully accessible music, composer Pepper Choplin leads us on a unique journey to reveal the Christmas story. The familiar components are all there: the visitations of the angels, the startled excitement of the shepherds, the shimmering guiding star, the worshipful reverence of the three kings. Pepper was also inspired to include the poignant chronicle of Simeon, whose greatest desire was to live long enough to personally witness the coming of the promised One, thus fulfilling the prophecy of long ago. Contents: Come, Prepare the Way; Angels Coming Down to Earth; Heaven's Child; Newborn Cry; We Welcome You, Emmanuel; Shepherd's Gloria; Heavenly Star; My Eyes Have Seen the Child; Join the Music of the Angels. 40 minutes.
