For unto us a Child is Born


The Adoration of the Magi
Fra Angelico and Fillipo Lippi


For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be upon his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

To everyone who is celebrating this feast, may I wish you and your families a very Happy and Holy Christmas.

From Handel's Messiah the wonderful chorus, For unto us a child is born.




Robert Shaw and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chamber Chorus
