This is a compelling musical triumph that invites the listener on a journey that ultimately leads to worship of the Christ Child. The text of the Christmas story blends seamlessly with a new narrative and exquisite lyric writing from Rose Aspinall, and Jay Rouse's incredible ability to fashion new melodies and arrange Christmas favorites with nuance and passion is on full display. The musical opens with an ethereal underscore that leads effortlessly into a 6/8 interpretation of ADESTE FIDELES, followed directly by the musical's theme song and anchor ballad, And It Came to Pass. Includes a brand-new original song that gives voice to Joseph's fears and longings, a traditional gospel setting of the all-time favorite Jesus, What a Wonderful Child, a syncopated, upbeat angel and shepherd announcement song titled Fire in the Sky, and a tender worship moment at the manger called Jesus, Prince of Peace. With a little something for everyone, this creative new work is sure to be an important part of your Christmas season. 50 minutes.
