A lively, dramatic Celtic flavor pervades this Christmas original by Mark Hayes. The pulsating rhythms urge God’s people to welcome God’s Son, the Child of Light, with joyful song. With captivating ease, strains of “What Child Is This?” and “Gloria in Excelsis Deo” weave in and out of the score. Beautiful harmonies and rich textures abound, and the optional instrumental ensemble adds a riveting touch.
