Composed and Arranged by Joel Raney & Mary McDonald
Orchestrated by Michael Lawrence
In this collaboration between two of the most popular sacred music arrangers in the country, Mary McDonald's exuberant, dynamic style blends seamlessly with Joel Raney's rhythmic and beautifully emotional music to provide your musicians with a unique Christmas event that is sure to become the highlight of the season. The work is composed of four stand-alone suites. Each movement includes original music combined with favorite carols, creating a perfect blend of familiar and new. The writing is accessible for most groups yet contains enough richness to provide any choir with a fulfilling choral experience. The optional two-person narration knits the suites into a thrilling and complete re-telling of the Christmas story. Performance time is 45 minutes.
