'The Birth of Christ' film showing as part of the Sanbornton Film Series

SANBORNTON — The Sanbornton Congregational Church – UCC in partnership with the Sanbornton Town Library will be showing the film "The Birth of Christ" on Wednesday, December 4 as part of the monthly film series. The film will run from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on the second floor of the library.

 “The Birth of Christ” is a Christmas Cantata by Andrew T. Miller. This inspiring, musical celebration brings the Christmas story to vivid life through song, as the timeless characters--Mary, Joseph, Elizabeth and the shepherds-- reveal their humanity and passion through the music. Recorded live in Ireland, this historic premiere brings together a chorus of Catholic and Protestant singers who raise their voices in unity and peace around the central mystery of their faith.

The film features a narration of Luke's Nativity by Liam Neeson. Soprano soloist Amy Bils’ will present her rendition of the “The Magnificat”. Additional performances by tenor Robert McPherson and baritone John B. Cooper. Following the film will be a discussion led by Rev. Ruth Martz.
