A Bach Noel

A Bach Noel is an anthemfor Christmas or Epiphany. Suggested corresponding lectionary readings include Psalm 148, Isaiah 63:7-9, Matthew 2: 1-23, Luke 2: 1-20, and Hebrews 2: 10-18. One basic homiletical theme is that the child who is born in the Bethlehem stable is the Savior of ancient prophecy and the King of Israel.
