The cry of a people waiting for redemption and deliverance is the heart of this poignant new offering for the season of lights. The melody sighs like a whispered prayer as the call goes forth “Veni, veni Emmanuel.” With a quote from O Come, O Come Emmanuel and the lonely sound of the cello, this piece ends still waiting but with a sense of hope. Moving!
