Heaven's Rose by Stan Pethel. For SATB choir. Christmas, Sacred. Octavo. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.C5086).
Stan Pethel's original Christmas anthem celebrates the incarnation of Christ with a creative text built around the biblical reference to Christ as the "Rose of Sharon." The real hook in this setting is the memorable refrain, and the development to the quote from "Lo, How a Rose" brings clarity and power to the message.
