This Christmas cantata was conceived with two main ideas: to provide a new cantata that was accessible to most choirs, and to provide a major work that would have wide appeal to choirs and congregations. Tidings of Great Joy is based upon the use of brief melodic quotes from familiar carols interwoven with new material (text and music) to tell the story of Christmas in a fresh way. There is considerable variety in the instrumentation and vocal work, providing for several soloists, women’s chorus, men’s chorus and an octet. Even though it is quite acceptable to perform this work with organ only, the use of instruments adds greatly to the overall effect and success of the piece.
Texts by: Mary Jackson Cathey and Rae E. Whitney.
