Foreword re vi ew O nl y The first time we heard the song "Christmas Is Coming," it reached out and grabbed us! The contagious, sparkling excitement of the music and the wonderful message in the lyrics inspired us and made us want to come back for more! Soon it became the theme for this musical: Let the spirit of the season lead you to the Holy Child who will awaken the child inside of you. Now that's a reason to celebrate! This musical is packed full of inspiring new songs from the likes of Steven Curtis Chapman, Jason Gray and Chris Tomlin; memorable programming opportunities (children's choir, women's trio, men's trio, Mary/Joseph duet, choral singing); and some of the world's most beloved carols. We are so grateful to Mark Cabaniss, Sarah Huffman, and Allan Douglas for their encouragement and support throughout this process. Tim Cates did a masterful job of orchestrating, and we have been so blessed by the contributions of the many talented instrumentalists, singers, and engineers on the recording. Fo rP This is our first musical collaboration and the Lord gave us a connection from the very start. When you have worked on a musical for many months and still find yourself moved by every song in the project, you know it is something special. That is the case here and we invite you to share the musical with us and envision the ministry that will take place through it. This musical has been birthed through much prayer – our prayer continues that many hearts will open to the redeeming message of Christmas and lives will be forever changed for His glory. Soli Deo Gloria, Gary Rhodes and Deborah Craig-Claar Complete Production Notes have been written by Deborah Craig-Claar, and can be found in this book and online at wordmusic.com.
