Of all the awesome events in the story of Christ's birth — the star, the angels, the shepherds, the wise men – the most remarkable is simply the fact that He came! Centuries later, we still find it hard to comprehend why God would leave the glory and splendor of heaven to live among men on earth. Whether we can wrap our minds around that or not, the truth remains. His name, spoken by the angel, reminds us that He is “God with Us – Emmanuel.” This musical explores what it meant for God to come as a baby: perfect Creator, becoming creation; and what it meant for us: the reconciliation of sinful man to a holy God. This singable, easy-to-learn musical celebration is designed for senior adults and features sensible ranges, limited solos, slightly abbreviated performance time and easy SATB voicing for optimum sound and vocal performance. Songs include: Emmanuel - Glory to God Medley (Emmanuel/Glory/O Come, Let Us Adore Him) • Angels We Have Heard on High/Holy, Holy, Holy • Best of Both Worlds • The Presence of Glory • Mary, Did You Know? • This Is Our God with What Child Is This? • God with Us, Emmanuel with Go, Tell It on the Mountain • Joy! Medley (For Unto Us a Child Is Born/Joy to the World!/O Holy Night!)
