Freely imitative, tonally/harmonically fluid treatment of this ancient Christmas melody. Lush harmonic textures alternate with (or in some cases result from) contrapuntal combination of disparate segments or motives of the melody. SATB a cappella with occasional divisi, almost entirely in the tenor and bass parts; piano reduction included for rehearsal purposes. Appropriate for university or advanced church choirs, including small ensembles. Low D-flat required of second basses, optional low C. Duration ca. 3:30.

  • January 04, 2017 Worth the work

    This is not an easy piece, and requires harmonic stability from every section. For the more advanced choir, or the choir that wants a challenge, it's completely worth it! Each verse is unique and expressive, with a lot of different colors and imagery expressed throughout. It is at times...

    touching, tense, thoughtful, exciting, agitated or haunting. The overall story weaves it all together into a great journey harmonically and melodically.

  • December 29, 2016 A new and innovative rendition

    This new and innovative rendition of the traditional hymn "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" will make a lovely addition to any Christmas concert. The interweaving voices and counterpoint make this an interesting piece from both a musical and textual standpoint. I sang this with a small group this past Christmas...

    and it brought great depth to our concert.
