Douglas E Wagner, Dale Wood
The age-old story of our Lord’s birth, retold each year around the world, is made more real and more deeply felt when experienced through the beloved carols of this season of joy. Dale Wood’s organ settings of such carols have been re-imagined for chorus by Douglas E. Wagner in this work that can be effective as a service of lessons and carols, a Christmas cantata, or a carol collection for service or concert use. While there is a fair amount of nostalgia associated with these treasured tunes and texts, let not these feelings obscure our primary view as we strive to tread the true path this blessed time of year. As we each, in our own way, make our pilgrimage to the Babe lying in a manger, let us instead refocus our hearts and minds and Come Now to Bethlehem.
