Eric Conway Conducts Miracle Temple in Christmas Cantata 'The Hope of Christmas' arranged by Dave Williamson, and 'Midnight Cry' on YouTube

Happy Holidays everyone!

Many of you know that during this season I constantly run between Christmas performances as a professional musician - the most wonderful time of the year!

Yesterday, I conducted a performance with soloists, choir, and orchestra.  The title of the piece was The Hope of Christmas arr. by Dave Williamson.  I sent out a last-minute notice about this event, however, only a few were able to make the presentation.  I had my camcorder running, and taped the Miracle Temple Sanctuary Choir singing this cleverly written Christmas cantata.

The cantata was sung during the normal 11:00 a.m. Sabbath service to a full house.  This church does not typically stop at the first coming of Christ, but goes on to sing about His second-coming in singing Midnight Cry originally recorded by Brooklyn Tabernacle.

Please see links below to the Christmas cantata and Midnight Cry finale.  I am sure that you will enjoy this spirited presentation in embracing Christmas season.
