Lights Over Bethlehem



The first musical for church choirs I composed was “Lights Over Bethlehem”, which existed first as a children’s musical. I then adapted it for adult SATB choirs, and it had its first performance in December 2006 by the choirs of Canley Churches. If you would be interested in using it or any of these musicals in your own church, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

The musical is told from the perspective of a spy, sent by Herod to find out what these rumours of a newborn king are all about. He narrates the story in between the songs.
