Description

Looking for something out of the ordinary for Advent/Christmas? Imagine Mary, the mother of Jesus, as a young Kentucky woman singing her praise song to God (Magnificat) in an Appalachian setting. Then picture Simeon as an elderly West Virginia coal miner/preacher voicing his grateful joy (Nunc Dimittis) at viewing the baby boy Jesus in the temple -- an event that he has waited for his whole life. Translate the traditional Latin of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis into present-day language. Both these events combine to form the refreshingly different extended anthem "Mary & Simeon." Written in a natural, unpretentious style for violin (fiddle), cello, and bluegrass instruments, this one-of-a-kind setting of time-honored words promises to bring unexpected joy to worship during this holy season. It includes the congregation in a "Gloria" that ends both pieces. Extensive performance notes are included in the anthem. Use the anthems together in one service, as part of an Appalachian-themed Advent service, or use them separately on their individual liturgical special days. Whatever use you make of them, these memorable, worshipful offerings surprise and energize worship for your choir and congregation.
