“Everlasting Light” Christmas Cantata
December 18, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
“Everlasting Light,” a beautiful, moving Christmas cantata to be presented at the New Hope Baptist Church, 268 Perham Street in Farmington, showcases the profound significance of the light of Christ coming to earth. An insightful narration incorporates Scripture and personal reflection to tie together the compelling combination of powerful original music and beloved carols. The celebratory opener, “Everlasting Light,” acts as the cornerstone of the work. “Longing for the Light” beautifully portrays a yearning for restoration. A stirring original song with words inspired by Mary’s Songs of Praise found in Luke 1:44-56; and “Shepherds and Angels” add joyful energy. The work concludes with a robust medley of carols that points back to the opening song: “He is the Light, Everlasting Light; born a Savior, born this night. He is the One, the Everlasting Son; Child of heaven, He is the Light!” There will also be two instrumental selections to round out the program. Presentation dates are Friday, December 16, and Sunday, December 18, at 7:00 pm. Admission is free. For more information, call 660-5766. (If any performance is cancelled due to snow, we will present the program on Thursday, December 22.)
