Behold The Star Arranged by Lloyd Larson. For SATB. Published by Lorenz Corporation. (Catalog # 65/2046L, UPC: 9781429129374)

The story of faith is often reflected as a journey from darkness to light. The Old Testament speaks of Israel living in bondage and darkness, awaiting the light of the promised Messiah, and His coming is punctuated by light every step of the way: a bright angelic host proclaiming the news to Judean shepherds keeping watch over their flocks; a shining star inviting Magi from afar to the young Christ-child in an act of worship and praise. The book of John refers to Jesus as the "light of all people" (Jn 1:4). Jesus even referred to Himself as the "light of the world" (Jn 8:12). It is this imagery of light that provides the unifying thread for "Behold the Star!" This extended work for choir, narrators, and congregation is a blend of original and familiar carols. It may be performed in a single worship experience or in smaller segments over the weeks leading to Christmas. "Behold the Star!" is an inspirational reminder that Jesus, the light of the world, has indeed come!
