Christmas Cantata still in the works

Well, it’s now 2011 and after over a year, I am still working on my cantata.  Working off of the Christmas story for the old world and relating it to the new world, it has been a slower process to realize my ideas than I expected.  The flow of ideas is easy — getting them down on paper is harder.  Plus, I struggle with words — probably could use a collaborator especially on the lyrics.  I did manage to get a couple of bits done and try them out with the church choir.  Working with a couple of choirs provides me a good proving ground to see what works and what doesn’t work for the average singer.
