Using songs and carols from the Appalachian shape-note tradition as well as some Moravian songs, this collection stands as a full Christmas cantata in a truly American style. The SATB vocal parts are suitable for small or medium-sized ensembles of any experience level. The orchestration adds more beautiful colors including bluegrass instruments. The extensive program notes include programming options for various services of worship as well as concert performance. It uniquely offers a rewarding experience from high school through adult in both sacred and secular venues.
