CANTATA: a medium-length narrative piece of music for voices with instrumental accompaniment,
typically with solos, chorus and orchestra.
Christmas Cantata, Sunday December 8, 2019 at 8:15 am and 10:45 am
One Silent Night by Pepper Choplin. Full Orchestra and Chancel Choir with soloists under the direction of Brian Norcross.
"One Silent Night long ago, a birth story began that forever changed the world. Lying in a crude manger was a new-born babe, who would become the Source of our Christian faith and our abiding hope. Using the power and simplicity of the event itself, composer and creator Pepper Choplin presents each of the familiar elements of that story through ballad-like recitatives of scripture, surrounded by anthems ranging from outbursts of unbridled joy to moving moments of introspection and gentleness. Weaving familiar carols and songs throughout original music, this timeless tale emerges in a deeply moving presentation that will lift one's faith and deepen one's understanding of the profound significance of that One Silent Night."
A great time to invite family and friends to hear the Christmas story in a new way.
