Briercrest Christmas

A Briercrest Christmas 2020

This year, in place of a live musical performance, we will be releasing short online videos. Your heart will be warmed as you watch and listen to this creative effort involving Briercrest students, alumni, staff, and faculty. We hope that you will join us in welcoming the season in which we celebrate our Savior’s birth!

Ding! Dong! Merrily on High

As the ticket master makes sure the next train is on schedule, the townspeople go about their daily business, singing in expectation of the evening’s Christmas Eve service. A mother and daughter eagerly await the arrival of their son and brother coming back from the War on the train as well as her Daughter, eager and excited to see her brother again. “Ding! Dong! Merrily on High” is sung by Briercrest College’s 13-voice a cappella group Resonant, and brought to life by students, faculty, and alumni.


Disclaimer: This video was filmed before present guidelines were put in effect on November 19, 2020. To avoid live singing, all audio was recorded in a controlled studio environment. The production crew wore masks and interactions between crew and actors were limited in between takes.

This heart-warming arrangement of Michael W. Smith' Agnus Dei with O come let us adore Him has been a favorite at Briercrest since 2002. A staple of the well-loved Briercrest Christmas Productions, the mass choir and orchestra often performed this piece in front of thousands as the nativity unfolded and the angel rose thirty feet in the air. Listen to this video that features some of our staff, students, and alumni of Briercrest College and Seminary's Performing and Worship Arts Department. We are so excited to share this beautiful song again with you this year!
