Here is a joyful service of lessons, carols, and anthems for Advent or Christmas. Come to the Manger includes a mixture of original anthems and traditional carols for unison or two-part voices with piano and optional handbells or handchimes. Seven scripture lessons serve as the foundation of the service as readers of any age recall God's promised Messiah and the birth of the Christ child. Anthems are appropriate for all ages, from developing treble choirs to mixed adult choirs looking for accessible two-part music. This comprehensive collection also includes congregational carol accompaniments, a carol prelude for piano, and helpful anthem teaching plans. An enhanced CD includes full demo tracks and many reproducible resources: reader's scripts, singers' pages, and instrumental parts.
