Complete Review Score

 Fred Bock's arrangement of ?Be Still and Know? has been a best-seller for years. Lloyd Larson has cleverly intertwined Fred's ?Be Still and Know? with his own setting of the ?Silent Night? and ''O Little Town of Bethlehem'' carols, and the results are stunning. A new classic has been born. This choral is part of the Brehm Center Choral Series which offers additional worship resources at Rehearsal Trax available separately.
