Beautiful Star will bless your socks off! Creative genius Dave Clark and arranger-orchestrator Steve Mauldin have combined their talents to offer an exciting collection of traditional and contemporary Southern Gospel Christmas favorites that senior adults will love.
With vocal ranges that are accessible and reasonable, complete with "real bass parts" and sing-able four-part gospel harmonies, Beautiful Star is written and arranged as a narrated musical with all the down-home warmth and charm of a Gaither 'Homecoming Celebration,' yet individual songs can be easily used as special music for any Christmas gathering.
This engaging collection includes such gospel favorites as "Beautiful Star of Bethlehem," "Go Tell It on the Mountain," and "That Beautiful Name," interspersed with new songs such as "A King Changes Everything" medlied with traditional carols like "O Come, All Ye Faithful" and "Away in a Manger." Vocal scores come in large-print format, and a fully orchestrated split-track accompaniment CD is also available. (22441821)
