About the presentation …
What sweeter music can we bring than a joyous carol
for to sing the birth of this, our heavenly King?
Awake the voice, awake the string!
Robert Herrick, 17th c. Poet
“What Sweeter Music is a sumptuous feast of fifteen English, German and French carols plus several new songs … The joyous Opening Medley sets the stage for the many exceptional moments to come, from the powerful new setting of the Magnifcat for soprano solo to the charming Cradle Medley, which features children’s voices. This cantata provides sensitive underscoring to continue the musical flow between movements as male and female narrators share the beloved Christmas story. To add to the festivity, the congregation will join the choir to sing in several of the carol medleys.” — the Publisher
