  • December 14, 2005 Accessible Music - Good Results

    Just used this cantata for my Christmas 2005 service and was very happy. I found the music to be very accessible for the average volunteer church choir - yet it was not insultingly easy. At the same time, the congregation proclaimed it to be the best that they had ever heard...

    at the church. I give it a four out of five. My only problems came in two areas: 1). Not enought traditional Christmas included for my taste. I felt the need to supplement with a medley of traditional carols. 2). The orchestrations are a little strange. One song would feature string quartet only, the next song woodwinds only, the next song trumpet only, etc. Besides these two small issues, this cantata rates very high with me.
