On This Very Night
A Christmas Musical for Every Choir
Created by Karla Worley
Arranged & Orchestrated by Lari Goss
Each year at Christmas we celebrate Emmanuel: God with us. This year, stand in the shoes of those who first heard the incredible news that Christ was coming! Imagine being present on the night Jesus was born--knowing that you were chosen to be part of delivering, witnessing and receiving the Good News. How would it feel to cast your eyes on a baby swaddled in a manger, and know that at this moment you are in the presence of God--that on this very night, everything's changed: God is among us!
The reality of this truth is the focus and inspiration for the powerful Christmas musical On This Very Night, from the best-selling creative team of Karla Worley and Lari Goss. Blending traditional carols with fresh musical expression and thought-provoking narration, On This Very Night reveals a heartfelt perspective and profound truth: that God came to real people, and His coming had real implications for their lives. We can relate to them because God comes to us every day, and His presence provokes a response. How we respond to God reveals the condition of our hearts. Sometimes, what is revealed is a surprise to us.
