Veni Emmanuel composed by Thomas Fettke. For SATB choir, piano (with optional hand drum, tambourine). Sacred Anthem, Advent, Christmas. Octavo. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-4238L).
Great for worship and equally well-suited for a school concert, this delightful setting of the beloved English carol "Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day" is paired with the traditional text "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel." A hint of the refrain from "O Come, All Ye Faithful" is woven through the Latin text. The vocal writing is superb, and the accompaniment dances along, supported by the spritely hand drum and tambourine.
