‘I would strongly recommend this cantata to other schools. The melodies of the songs are very attractive. The children and I so enjoyed working on it and performing it!’
- RL, Music Coordinator, Solihull.
One Bright Star is a very refreshing addition to Christmas repertoire for young people, with songs that are not only catchy and easy to teach but also have great character and emotional appeal. As one reviewer puts it, this cantata truly has 'star quality'!
This short cantata re-tells the most significant parts of the Christmas story in five particularly attractive songs with linking narrative. One Bright Star makes a lovely centrepiece for any carol concert, with beautifully orchestrated backings on the CD to enhance performance. Although singers may perform in unison, the harmony parts are lovely and easily achievable.
The accompanying CD features full vocal demonstrations that are perfect for easy teaching and backing tracks with clear melody cues for a professional-quality performance. Age guide 8 to 14+ years.
