This is the theme music for the 1984 version of A Christmas Carol, starring George C. Scott as Scrooge. Nick Bicat composed the music, and the street scenes were shot in Shrewsbury, England. If you haven’t seen it, trust me, it’s wonderful.
The story itself is a reminded that God created us for good works–not to buy our way into Heaven, but to be vessels of God’s love, living testimony to His sanctifying power, and instruments of His goodness.
I love Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and this wonderful 1984 movie version of it, starring George C. Scott as Scrooge. And I really love this theme music, composed by Nick Bicat, And God Bless Us, Every One.
I guess there are those who think A Christmas Carol is old hat. Are you kidding me? This is a movie about repentance and redemption–and who in this fallen world doesn’t need repentance and redemption? Who is more to be pitied than someone who has no hope of redemption?
But that’s exactly what Our Lord Jesus Christ came into the world to do for us.
This is one of my favorites. Nick Bicat composed it in 1984 as title music for A Christmas Carol starring George C. Scott. It’s not a hymn per se, nor any kind of traditional carol; but I like it.
If you haven’t seen this version of A Christmas Carol, I highly recommend it. Again, the business at hand is redemption by the grace of God, by means of Jesus Christ the Son of God.
That’s what Christmas is about.
