The Lake of the Woods Church Chancel Choir will present “Heaven’s Child” by Pepper Choplin on Friday, Dec. 15, and Saturday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. in the Sanctuary.
Through imaginative poetic metaphors in the narrative and engaging yet wonderfully accessible music, “Heaven’s Child” leads us on a unique journey to reveal the Christmas story. The familiar components are all there–the visitations of the angels, the startled excitement of the shepherds, the shimmering guiding star, the worshipful reverence of the three kings.
The composer, Pepper Choplin was also inspired to include the poignant chronicle of Simeon, whose greatest desire was to live long enough to personally witness the coming of the promised One, thus fulfilling the prophecy of long ago.
“Heaven’s Child” is a transforming presentation, taking us deeply into the mystery and awe of Christmas and into the eternal significance of that perfect union of heaven and earth — the divine and the human.
