Alan Bullard
A Light in the Stable

Prologue: Of our Maker's love begotten
As Joseph was a-walking
The Shepherds
Go, Tell it on the Mountain
While shepherds watched
The Angel
Glory to God in the highest
Hark! The herald angels sing
The Manger
The little Lord Jesus
The shepherds visit the stable
He is born
Mary ponders these things in her heart
Sing lullaby
The wise me
As with gladness men of old
The wise men offer their gifts
A Light for Today
Of our Maker's love begotten<

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.
