The First Presbyterian Choir and Celebrants will be presenting the cantata “Night of the Father’s Love” by Pepper Choplin on December 15 at 10:30. Members of the choir will also do the narrations for this cantata. This is a moving compositions which tells us of the awe and mystery of God’s love for us. It starts with a very moving announcement with the selection, “The Coming of the Lord “. It then moves on to the selection, “Waiting” in which we wait , then listen and then ask God to give us patience in our waiting. The angels then appear to Mary, Zechariah, and Joseph announcing the good news that is to come in a meaningful anthem “Angels Are Making Their Rounds”.
Others selections in this cantata are:
Night of the Father’s Love
The Shepherds’ Song
Seeking the King
Fall on Your Knees
Christ is Born, Nowell
