Lord of Glory (cantata)

Christmas Cantata From Dan Forrest: “My desire is for this cantata to communicate the unadorned scriptural story of the incarnation in the fresh light that will cause the listeners and the musicians to have a renewed appreciation of the Christmas story. Throughout, the narration and music are designed to give Christ the preeminence in the Christmas story by contrasting His pre-incarnate glory in heaven with His humility in coming to earth.”

The music is designed to be fresh, musically satisfying, and varied, yet accessible for an average church choir. The cantata is also designed to be as flexible as possible. A small church choir can effectively present a beautiful and satisfying program using just piano accompaniment. Churches with a few instruments (flute/violin and trumpet) can use them with the included optional solo parts. A church with larger resources can consider incorporating a children’s choir and a chamber orchestra. (Orchestral parts are available separately.) The narration text is taken directly from Scripture, and the verse selection and musical context present these truths in a fresh light. Two selections, “God and Father, We Adore Thee” and “Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne/Once in Royal David’s City” (Finale), include optional congregational parts. (Reproducible handouts are included.)
