SATB choir with soprano voice solo, a cappella - Easy/Medium
Composed by Joel Martinson (1960-). Cathedral/Parish. Choral, Christmas. Choral octavo. Published by Paraclete Press (PL.9405).

Item Number: PL.9405

In this a cappella setting of Kenneth Patchen's text, Joel Martinson presents an intimate vision of the nativity of Jesus. It is written in homophonic style, with two choruses and a solo section. The melody is quite simple and uses subdued dynamic levels. Subtle meter changes occur throughout allowing the text to flow freely. A lyric soprano solo over the choir's quiet humming in the middle verse seems to add a feeling of awe as we stand before the infant king.
