A Light in the Stable tells the Christmas story through a blend of original settings and well-known carols, and is suitable for both concert and church choirs. The familiar Gospel words (which may be spoken, sung, or replaced with other appropriate readings) are interspersed with a range of new material, including the lively 'Glory to God'; 'Sing Lullaby', in which Mary foreshadows the events of Jesus' life; and the reflective 'A Light for Today', an evocation of the Nativity tableau. The audience/congregation are encouraged to join in for some carols, and choir and listeners will delight in the new settings of familiar words. A range of soloists may optionally take some of the vocal lines, and the accompaniment is equally flexible. A wonderful companion to Bullard's Advent celebration, O Come, Emmanuel, this work is perfect for anyone looking for a new take on familiar Christmas words and melodies. Orchestration: 1 fl, 1 ob. 1 cl (Bb/A), 1 bsn, 1 tpt, 1 hn (opt.) perc. (small bell, tenor dr, glock)(opt.), 1 harp (opt.), and either string quintet or string orchestra or keyboard (pno/organ). The keyboard part here is an alternative to the string parts, and not the same as the accompaniment printed in the vocal score. Many of the movements can also be performed separately during the Christmas season.
