This exciting suite tells the story of the birth of Christ by weaving spirituals together. The shepherds start the journey with RISE UP, SHEPHERD. Twoother spirituals followWHAT MONTH WAS MY JESUS BORN IN and THE VIRGIN MARY HAD-A ONE SONleading into "Mary Had a Baby, SHOUT FOR JOY!" The suite ends with a rousing gospel arrangement of GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN. This idiomatic suite would be at home in school and church programs alike. Chamber Orchestra Parts are also available on rental for the work.
