Be the first to review this product

Styled after such memorable projects as Mary, Did You Know? and Written in Red, David Guthrie and Dave Williamson have crafted another powerful project accessible to choirs of all sizes. Using proven songs your congregation will know and love, Start at the Manger does not require soloists, special staging or drama to tell the Christmas story simply, in all of its power.

With its short preparation and performance times, Start at the Manger will bring the hearts of your congregation back to Bethlehem's manger...and on to the cross.
