Arr. Joel Raney
Following up on the success of last year's gospel Christmas cantata, Joy!, Joel Raney once again brings his masterful ability to compose new and creative rhythms that showcase his grasp of the gospel style to Hope! The Christmas story unfolds through six compelling choral settings for SATB voices. Scripture readings guide us to the manger and reflect on the promise of hope we find in Christ's birth. Accompaniment can be provided by just piano, or Ed Hogan's lively orchestration, or a smaller set of rhythm parts. Performance time is 25-minutes, making this ideal for fitting into a Christmas worship service or as a separate musical program. Rhythm parts: Conductor's Score, Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano, Keyboard I & II & Percussion.
