cantata-2016a

“Invitation to a Miracle: A Cantata for Christmas”  by Joseph Martin
Presented by: The Pender UMC Sanctuary Choir and Orchestra

Sunday, December 4  All 3 Services

Joyful sounds abound in this colorful Christmas gift for choirs. Through poetic narration, scripture passages and creatively arranged carols, the timeless story of the birth of Christ is presented. Gathered around the wonders that accompanied Jesus’ birth, this cantata journeys from the miracle of prophecy to the incarnation and proclamation of this most significant moment.
