Default Season's greetings to all

Season's greetings to all on Christmas Eve.

Here is some music that I've prepared for a show we didn't manage to stage this year, but hope to next year.

It's called "The Christmas Mysteries" and it's based on the English, 14th century Wakefield Cycle of mystery plays. A Cycle play was a set of religious dramas that were played outside, on pageant wagons, in many towns throughout Europe in medieval times. They told the story of the Bible through many small play-lets. They were often comic, spectacular, and very entertaining.

I've adapted the four Christmas plays from the Wakefield cycle into one 1-hour play that we intend to produce outdoors (at Christmas-time, in Canada!). Basically it's a highly glorified Sunday school pageant, with the Nativity, the Shepherds, the Kings, Herod, the Flight Into Egypt and more. Oh yes, and a donkey.

We will be lucky enough to have the Anglican church choir participating in the show, so the music will be glorious.

Here are some of the "numbers" we will use.

Have a safe and merry Christmas.
