John Parker. Luke 2:8-16.
Original anthem From John Parker & Joel Raney, here is a light-hearted, 2-part mixed original, telling the story of the nativity in a jazzy style that hings at the Caribbean. At the mid-point, a gentle, unison treatment of "What Child Is This" appears to remind us of the simplicity of the moment. The colorful accompaniment with its distinctly Middle Eastern flavor, calls us to mind a journey through the desert to witness the birth of the King. . . where a stable light shines.
