Simply gorgeous! Lloyd Larson has crafted a flexible, singable cantata in three suites, one each for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. Each suite is 7-10 minutes in length and includes suggestions for the observance of seasonal customs, such as lighting of Advent candles or presentation of gifts. Filled with delightful carols and scripture narration, The Christmas Promise also includes optional congregation and children's choir participation. Optional chamber orchestra accompaniment and a P/A CD is also available.
