A Musical Service for SATB Choir, Soloists, Two Narrators, and Optional Full Orchestra
"Seek, and you will find." It is one of best-known and oft-quoted scripture passages. In a broad sense, all Christians are seekers: seekers of Christ in all parts of our lives, much as those centuries ago, were seeking a Messiah to lead the faithful out of the darkness and into a promised land And it is from this interesting premise that the familiar Christmas is brought to life in text and music for us today much as it was for Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, and the angels years ago. Using some familiar carols as well as John Purifoy's well-known original melodic gifts, CHRISTMAS SEEKERS will not only enhance your celebration of Christmas, but engender the spirit of seeking Christ in all we are and in all we do. Performance time: approximately 35 minutes.
