Follow the Star to Calvary
An Adult Senior Choir Christmas Cantata
Through His Grace Music has a Christmas Cantata, Follow the Star to Calvary, in development. It contains 9 original gospel Christmas songs, the lyrics for which were written by Penny Ferguson and the music for which was composed by Paul and Penny Ferguson. Penny wrote the dramatic script which tells of Dave, a Christian and a woodcarver, who has invited his unsaved co-worker, Wendell, to his workshop. Dave has been looking for an opening to share the gospel with Wendell. Wendell is interested in becoming involved with the hobby of woodcarving. Once he arrives at Dave’s, he is intrigued by a project Dave has been working on as a Christmas present for his wife–a nativity set. As Wendell examines Dave’s work and asks about the figures he has carved, the gospel unfolds.
At this point, the accompaniment tracks for the cantata have been completed by Sharen Alexander. The demo CD of the entire production has been recorded. The music for the songs has been transcribed into sheet music. SATB parts have been arranged by Lee Fortune. The cantata has not yet gone to print. It was presented December 13, 2015 by Enon Baptist Church in Walnut Hill, Florida, USA.
