The Silence and the Sound - by Heather Sorenson
Summary of the Cantata
This is a brand new (2015) musical written by Heather Sorenson (USA).
Please don’t be put off by the possibly ‘highbrow’ sounding name of Cantata, because this is a contemporary, vibrant, uplifting and very harmonious musical.
It is perfect start for your lead up to Christmas. There are lots of carols threaded through the work, in very imaginative ways. It’s a joy to sing and am sure to listen to as well.
More than just a re-telling of the nativity, this work explores both the mystery and the majesty of Christ's birth. Punctuated with original sacred songs and beloved carols, this innovative cantata is not only a beautiful concert moment, but it is a true worship experience.
The richness of both contemporary and traditional elements, along with thoughtful narrations, make this work an excellent choice for blended worship styles, and Keith Christopher's stunning orchestrations complete the package. The perfect blending of artistry and ministry!
