Messiah Composed by G F Handel. Arranged by Larry Pugh. For SATB. Published by Lorenz Corporation. (Catalog # CC44, UPC: 000308004069)

The birth of the Holy Child is gently recalled in this serene and contemplativ e mini-cantata. This composer's familiar hallmarks of colorful organ sounds an d expressive choral writing shine throughout this luminous work. An original, flowing setting of Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus leads off the Bethlehem jour ney, followed by the well-known Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming. The very first a we-filled visitors are in attendance with While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks , and all adore the new-born King with a sumptuous choral arrangement of Away in a Manger, weaving both familiar melodies together in simple tranquility. A sensitive setting of the Christina Rossetti poem, Love Came Down at Christmas brings the entire work together, quietly heralding Jesus' peaceful arrival on earth. The narrator comments throughout with the familiar Christmas story from St. Luke. You will find this work to be suitable for the Sundays before Chris tmas, on Christmas Day, and especially, on Christmas Eve.
