Light of The World Composed by Mark Patterson. For Singer Edition Un/2 Part. Published by Choristers Guild. (Catalog # CGC47, UPC: 749193007525)

This new, well crafted musical combines original songs and familiar carols from around the world to tell the Christmas story. Through narration, drama and song, choristers share how Jesus came to be the "Light of the World" over 2,000 years ago. The narration begins with the story of creation, turns to the prophetic words of Isaiah, and then recounts the events of Jesus' birth. Three of the carols give the option of singing the original language texts (French, German, Spanish); a pronunciation guide provided. Optional descants and accessible second parts enrich the experience and help develop part-singing skills. Many of the songs could be used separately for worship. Throughout the musical, a single burning candle symbolizes the light of Christ. This light is shared with the congregation at the close of the musical with an invitation to "take the Light" out into the world. Performance time: 30-40 minutes.
