"He will come to earth, babe of humble birth, born to set us free." This gently flowing Advent meditation resonates with references to the beloved carol, "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel." Jay Althouse's great gift for lyricism is complemented here by his splendid, quietly expressive accompaniment. The vocals are easily prepared, yet make the choir sound rich and full. An inspired choice for Advent or Christmas Eve, in 2 voicings.
