What a night it was for those shepherds in the field. Personally, I love the sound of a choir. We went to the High School choral concert Monday night, and it was wonderful. They sang a lot of Christmas songs in various renditions. There was even some audience singing of Christmas carols. I’;m glad our school has not bowed to the politically correct crowd that says no Christmas at Christmas. I love singing those timeless hymns.
But that night must have been the most spectacular choral concert ever heard in earth. First, a solo performance with an Angel shining bright in the spotlight. The Angel appeared out of nowhere and frightened them at first. But then he cried out “Fer not! For behold I bring you good tidings of great joy. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior,m which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger”. Then the sky lit up so bright they needed sunglasses in the middle of the night (Unfortunately, sunglasses were not available). A whole host of angels appeared, shining like the sun. The angle choir sang out “Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth peace and good will to man”. What a chorus! What a night!
