Free Christmas cantata teaches festive history

GLASGOW — Cave City and Highland United Methodist churches invite the community to a free Christmas cantata program that will explore the history of traditional Christmas songs.

Titled “Glorious Songs of Old,” the acting and singing performance will teach the audience some of the background information behind popular Christmas tunes, according to Stephen Wilson, music minister for both churches.

“It’s basically telling the untold stories behind the Christmas songs we sing,” Wilson said.

Songs performed will include “The Christmas Song,” “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear,” “Mary, Did You Know,” “Silver Bells,” God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

The show will run Dec. 14 and 15 at 6 p.m. and Dec. 16 at 2 p.m. at Cave City United Methodist’s fellowship hall on Duke Street. A meal will be provided during intermission of both evening performances and Santa Claus will be on hand at the matinee performance to provide entertainment and take pictures with the children.

The program will last about an hour and a half to an hour and 45 minutes, including intermission. There is no cost to attendees for any portion of the program.

“All they have to do is come as they are,” Wilson said. “There’s no charge of any sort.”
