A 55-minute presentation for adult choirs in ten creatively packaged sections, each highlighting a particular facet of the Christmas Story.
The team of premier arranger TOM FETTKE and inspirational writer and lyricist, KEN BIBLE, has created this extraordinarily singable and heartfelt message of the wonder of Christ's birth. Each of the sections features an underscored scripture passage introducing the theme, a fresh carol setting and a dramatic monologue. Wrapping up each musical package is a choral anthem based on the theme of the section. The Wonder of Christmas utilizes a wide variety of musical styles, and presents ample opportunities for congregational involvement. To hear samples from this work, click on audio previews, below.
