This latest cantata collaboration by Mark Hayes and John Parker is an innovative presentation of the beloved Christmas story. The inspired music covers the dynamic spectrum from poignant and introspective prayers for God's mercy to angelic proclamations of God's majesty and glory. It is a unique blend of new Christmas anthems with favorite yuletide carols. The distinctive use of familiar Latin phrases in each selection serves as a common thread throughout the work and capitalizes on a current trend in many churches-reaching back to embrace ancient worship. The allusion to aspects of nature in each anthem underscores the overall theme and uniquely highlights the familiar progression of the Christmas story which includes the angels, shepherds, Mary and the Wise Men. The optional inclusion of congregation on familiar carols along with Audra Parker's fresh narration makes this a joyous Christmas worship experience for choir and congregation alike! (Limit one per church).

    church pianist/organist related the complexity of “Let Heaven and Nature Sing GLORIA!� was well thought out and worth every moment of time and effort, to successfully present this “Work of Art� to our congregations and visitors. The combined choirs and their musical directors thoroughly enjoyed rehearsal times and we all felt we had given “Our Best� Christmas Gift to Our Lord and Saviour.
