Composers of some of the most popular music for children and liturgy, Carey Landry and Carol Jean Kinghorn bring us this wonderful collection of music for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. Designed for adult choirs, children's choirs, liturgical celebrations, liturgies with children and catechetical moments, How Beautiful Is the Child offers songs in a variety of musical styles—from energetic music for children to more contemplative hymns for adults.

The collection opens with "Season Full of Promise," a delightful round for children's choir, and "Waiting in Silence," a hauntingly beautiful Advent hymn. Other highlights include Carey's a beautiful medley arrangement of his classic hymn "Hail Mary: Gentle Woman" and "Silent Night;" an innovative setting of the traditional hymn "The Friendly Beasts," which children will love; and several pieces in which the adult choir and the children's choir sing together.

The songbook follows the sequence of the recording and includes two programs for using the music in a Christmas pageant. Program 1 is for a pageant featuring adult and children's choirs. Program 2 is designed for classes of children and young people in a faith-based school or Christian education program. Both are based on the Scripture readings for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany.

Perfect for use as accompaniment in the classroom and for the children's or adult choirs in a Christmas pageant, the instrumental CD can also serve as a soothing background for prayer and meditation during Advent and Christmas.

Celebrate the good news of Jesus' birth and create beautiful celebrations for your assembly with the music of How Beautiful Is the Child!
