Clydesdale. According to promotional information from the Lillenas Publishing Company, the musical is “a combination of traditional carols and remarkable songs – and the title song in particular [reminds us] that while all of the trimmings of Christmas are good, the deepest longing of our hearts is really for Jesus.” The Greenbrier Valley Nazarene Sanctuary Choir is using the musical’s multi-media soundtrack, including visuals, produced exclusively for the cantata by the publisher. Adult members of the choir include: Pat Leiter, Cathy Wolcott, Hazel Jackson, Glen Thaxton, Mildred Meadows, Tim Midkiff, George Gascon, Beverly Sams, Leonard Meadows, Cantini Parkinson, and director Jonathan Wright.
