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.
