Come, Emmanuel, Come composed by Nancy Price and Don Besig. For Choral (SATB). Harold Flammer. 16 pages. Shawnee Press #A7821. Published by Shawnee Press (HL.35004300).
A plaintive flute obbligato sets up a feeling of starkness and loneliness in this moving song of anticipation; but the melancholy sense of longing breaks into triumphant strains of hope and rejoicing. This emotional new Advent offering from the team of Price and Besig is accessible to choirs of any size. Come, Emmanuel, Come is a lovely way to begin the season of waiting and wonder.
