Choral There Is a Rose

By John Parker and Robert Sterling

A unique and extremely useful concept for a Christmas cantata, this lovely work by Robert Sterling may be used in various ways. The entire work, including the Christmas Intrada and four suites, each containing original and familiar music and divided by poignant narrative, may be used in one presentation. However, it has been designed for each of the four suites to be used on any or all of the Sundays of Advent and Christmas. The cantata is scored for choir, soloists and keyboard, or it may be presented with chamber orchestra accompaniment. A moving and versatile offering!
