Now available in an SAB edition, this 2010 cantata includes four brand-new choral pieces, two choral arrangements of familiar Christmas hymns, and narrated piano solos that shine new light on some old tunes.
This SATB piece is especially appropriate for Christmas, but may be used at other times of the year. The song speaks with reverence of the birth, ministry, and atonement of the Savior. Though this song is scored with majestic piano interludes, it may also be performed a capella as a hymn. It was written as a part of the 2010 Christmas cantata Come and Behold Him. This standalone version contains different measure numbering from the original cantata score.
