This easy-to-sing, moving, yet at the same time groovy work combines the Christmas story as told in St. Luke's Gospel with Christmas songs, spirituals and folk songs. It can be sung with great flexibility in the spirit of an oratorio.
This basic edition provides all of the choral pieces as easy-to-sing strophic songs, each introduced by solo passages. Between the choral sections, the Christmas story from St. Luke's Gospel is freely declaimed by a narrator. The distinctive compositional concept also provides the option of combinig different choirs (mixed choir, treble choir, male-voice choir) together in a single, joint performance. The naming of the chords throughout indicates the possibility of a free chord accompaniment, for example on piano or guitar. For pianists, it is also easily possible to take the corresponding passages of the piano accompaniment and the accompaniment for the spoken texts of the narrator from the enriched oratorio edition C5749.

Duration: about 35 minutes
