The program is voiced for SSAATTBB, accompanied by piano, organ (required) and two flutes (also required). There are solo parts for one or more soprano; one or more tenor/high baritone; and one child (optional).

Please note that none of the instruments in this program is optional.

    Hi Sally~
    First time commenting but use your music often, thank you! Would you please recommend which of the selections from ‘In Him, We Live’ could be used for a Sacrament meeting Christmas program?
    Also, how does one download a complete cantata with narration and interludes, etc., from your website?

    Thank you again so much for sharing your amazing talent and music with us!

      Carol, the Christmas selections in this program are “What Sound Upon the Midnight Air?” and “There Within a Stable.” Either one would be appropriate for a Sacrament meeting. “What Sound…” is meant for a large choir with some musical skill, so it may or may not work for your particular group. “There Within…” is voiced only for SSAA or solo.

      To download the entire cantata, just use the links above.
