by John Barnard and Paul Wigmore
Based on the traditional nine lessons of Christmastide,
'Bethlehem!' is a retelling of the Christmas story. The witty, light-hearted libretto by Paul Wigmore and catchy score by John Barnard is sure to appeal to performers and audiences alike. The music is for treble voices and is mostly unison, with occasional 2- or 3-part writing.Two new hymns may be sung by choir and audience together. The vocal score includes a separate vocal part which may be photocopied.
