About the presentation …
The inspiration for this cantata was Christina Rossetti’s poem, Love Came Down at Christmas. What a perfect phrase to describe the very essence of Christmas! First published in 1885, this remarkable lyric has survived the ages without being attached to a specific tune. … Much of the material in this cantata is original, though you will find many familiar carols and Christmas favorites woven into its fabric as well. — Joel Raney
Love Came Down at Christmas is presented by the Choir & Orchestra of First Baptist Church of Troy under the direction of Pastor Steve Allen.
Love Came Down at Christmas is written by Joel Raney and published by the Lorenz Corporation.
