Full Score and Parts
THE LITTLE CHILD is a modern Christmas cantata which tells the story of the birth of Jesus. Ten carols are set among original music with a narration carefully adapted and contemporized from KJV and other excellent Bible translations.
The instrumentation is the same as John Rutter’s famous GLORIA, except for the percussion requirements, which varies. THE LITTLE CHILD and GLORIA make a nice pairing!
Commissioned in 2001 by the choirs of Claremont (CA) Presbyterian Church (Grace Sheldon-Williams, Director) and Glendale (CA) Presbyterian Church (Jannette Carothers, Director).
SATB, Narrator, Organ, 4 Bb Trumpets, 2 Trombones, Bass Trombone, Tuba, and 2 Percussion.
