Come to the Manger is a compelling new Christmas cantata for SATB voices and two narrators that sparkles with the artistry of its composer/arranger, Mark Hayes. In the first half, "The Nativity of Jesus," we visit the humble manger and gather with the shepherds to worship the Christ Child. In the second half, "The Visit of the Wise Men," we celebrate the gift of God's Son with the magi. Approximately 30 minutes long, this cantata can be performed in its entirety or in two parts, at Christmas and Epiphany. Optional unison children's choir, solos, and congregational singing are also included. Orchestrated parts and a full-performance/accompaniment CD recording are available separately.
