Touch of an Angel, The
Ruth Elaine Schram & Scott D. Schram - Alfred Music Publishing
Throughout time, the touch of an angel has changed people, events, and even the course of history. In the Christmas Story, God used angels to change the lives of ordinary people with extraordinary news, missions and blessings. All of these people --Zechariah, Elizabeth, Joseph, Mary, the shepherds and the magi--were changed forever by the touch of an angel. Touch of an Angel is perfect for children's choirs, Christian schools or Sunday schools. All of the seven short songs and medleys are singable and memorable with fun, repetitive, easy-to-learn texts that are biblically accurate. The tunes are based primarily on traditional carols, hymns and spirituals. The narrator can read the story, and the seven additional speaking parts are simple and easily memorized. Directors can expand the cast to accommodate larger groups, or use as few as 8-10 children, and the staging can be as simple or complex as desired. The director's score includes the keyboard accompaniment, costuming, prop and staging suggestions, dialog and vocals. The performance pak consists of one director's score and 10 singer's editions. Grades K-3. 25 minutes.
