Night of the God-Child (Full Score)


 For teaching your choir, the piano/vocal score is fine.  But if you’re mounting the whole ensemble, this FULL SCORE gives you a commanding view of everything that’s going on.  The FULL SCORE allows you to be in control and takes the guess work out of rehearsing with the instrumentalists.

This work is the third in the ‘Night of…’ Christmas Trilogy commissioned by the Peterborough Singers of Canada in 2014. It takes as its premise the story of Mary’s encounter with the angel who announced that she had been chosen to mother the God-Child. Imagine how stunning it would be to receive an angelic visitor extolling one’s name! Imagine how humbling to know that one’s life was going to be used profoundly in bringing salvation to the people! The Magnificat is used to capture the Scriptural voice of Mary’s response. And  further commentary on the awesome encounter is offered by the men of the choir in quasi-Gregorian style. Powerful praise ends the work as a sign that ‘the generations’ still marvel at God’s hand in the affairs of mankind.
