And This Shall Be a Sign

A cantata proclaiming God's promise fulfilled
Larry Shackley, John Parker, Audra Parker
SAB and Piano with optional Orchestra, Accompaniment CD, Performance CD, Rehearsal CDs
Many scripture passages foretell the coming of the Messiah, with perhaps the most well-known being the angel comforting the frightened shepherds on the hillside saying, “And this shall be a sign unto you...” This musical depiction recalls seven of those signs in a unique re-telling of the Christmas story, beginning with the prophecies of Isaiah through the blessing from Simeon in Luke, each providing a signpost for the arrival of the Christ Child. With familiar carols interspersed among the very melodic and stylistically diverse music of Larry Shackley, “And This Shall Be a Sign” will have a strong appeal for the congregations of both the traditional and blended worship service. And with both SATB and SAB editions being available (along with reproducible part-dominant CDs for each voicing), churches of virtually any size will be able to successfully present this work in a meaningful and uplifting way.
