With familiar carols interspersed among the very melodic and stylistically diverse music of Larry Shackley, And This Shall Be a Sign
will have a strong appeal for the congregations of both the traditional and blended worship service. And with both SATB and SAB editions available (along with reproducible part-dominant CDs for each voicing), churches of virtually any size will be able to successfully present this work in a meaningful and uplifting way.
And This Shall Be a Sign is a Christmas celebration of the Messiah as seen through the historical and scriptural lens of signs from God. May your choir be blessed and your congregation edified as you worship the one true Christ, the Son of God, not only this Christmas season, but each day of your lives. Performance time: approximately 35 minutes.
Instrumentation: 2 Flutes, Oboe, 2 Clarinets, Bassoon, 2 F Horns, 3 Trumpets, 2 Trombones, Tuba, Timpani, 2 Percussion, Violin 1 & 2, Viola, Cello, Bass.
