A Blest Messiah Born

KHUC’s 2016 Cantata

Larry Shackley skillfully blends of some of the most beloved ancient and timeless carols into a fresh, captivating retelling of the story of Jesus' birth.

The Christmas season opens a portal in time through which words and melodies from many centuries flow into our busy modern lives. It begins with God's eternal plan of redemption, then starts the Christmas story with the Annunciation. Along the way, Larry presents delightful new settings of favourite carols such as "The Friendly Beasts;" "What Child is This?;" "Ding Dong! Merrily on High;" and "Good Christian Friends, Rejoice.” A Blest Messiah Born contains rich moments of reflection as well as high-spirited rejoicing. It is enhanced by hints of Renaissance rhythms and melodies, and the lyrics of the carols flow together with the poetic narration to portray the events of the nativity story.

Scripture Reference: John 3:16; Colossians 1:19, 20
