Prepare! by Lloyd Larson. Choir Sacred. 2-Part Choir. Choral (Sacred); Choral Octavo; Worship Resources. Advent; Sacred; Winter. Grade 2. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.22832).
This lively Advent anthem is based upon Isaiah's prophecy, "Prepare for the coming of the Lord!" The transparent 2-part mixed vocal texture really sparkles with canon and call-and-response, giving the piece a clean, classical sound. The optional percussion adds a special touch. Suggested scriptures: Isaiah 40: 3-4, Matthew 3: 1-3, Mark 1: 1-3, Luke 3: 1-6, John 1: 19-28.
