(A Christmas Musical)Joel Raney - Hope Publishing Company
Featuring original music interspersed with familiar carols, this musical for SATB choir tells the Christmas story from the vantage point of angels...from Gabriel's first appearance to Zacharias, to the glorious scene of angels filling the heavens singing "Gloria in excelsis Deo," The range of musical styles reflects the various moods of the angels' scenes, weaving a colorful musical tapestry of angel portraits. The program closes exuberantly with the congregation joining to sing Angels We Have Heard on High and Hark! the Herald Angels Sing. This work will fit easily into a worship service or special program. Accompaniment can be provided by piano, chamber orchestra or CD track. Performance time: 30 minutes.
