This is a christmas program that I wrote with C. Michael Perry for our church service on Christmas Morning. The link above contains the sheet music and script for the entire program.
The zip file includes:
The Full Script for the program
(Appropriate for an LDS Sacrament Meeting)
A shorter variation of the script
(includes only 4 of the songs- with a Congregational Hymn of "Angels We Have Heard on High")
Far, Far Away
(based on Far, Far Away on Judea's Plains)
Be It Unto Us
(a song depicting how Mary and Joseph felt in being the Earthly parents of the Savior of the world)
Holy Little Lamb
(an original composition, describing the parallels between the Holy Lambs used for the Temple Sacrifices and Christ as the Holy Lamb and each of us in our Sacrifices to the Lord.)
Below Us All
(About how the savior of us all was born in the most lowliest of circumstances- in order to descend below us all and take upon Him all our sins.)
Wise Men Still Seek Him
(both SAB and SATB versions) (about how we too, today, are also wisemen (and women) who can seek and FIND Him.)
Joy To The World
(a concluding congregational hymn meant for piano, organ, choir and congregation. Includes the full score, organ and congregation music and piano and choir music)
C. Michael Perry has also created a script that can be downloaded freely at his website
. This script deals with a family reassuring their young son, who has been selected to play a Wiseman in the local Christmas pageant. With the full script, the Cantata should take about 40 minutes.
This cantata (in all it's forms) is free to download and perform for church groups wishing to use the piece in a Worship Service or Sacrament Meeting, or even in a public concert where no admission is charged. For other public uses of this Cantata, by School, Community, University or Professional Choirs — whether admission is charged or not — we ask that you pay a slight royalty charge of $15.00.
