Here is a three movement piece that was part of our church Christmas concert 10 years ago. We hired the strings and woodwinds but the organist and brasswind players were part of our fairly deep bench at our church. This rendition is from the musicians and choirs at a Catholic church a bit down the road from where I live.

When I'm out under the stars with my 5" achro refractor, this is one of the pieces sort of playing in my head. I wonder what it was like when the night sky lit up that night on the first Christmas.

Merry Christmas
