Painting the text in music, this engaging Advent choral has a theme punctuated with enigmatic rests bringing a sense of urgency and anticipation to the hope for Messiah. A stately 3/4 meter gives the music a steady purposeful feel while the text espouses the attributes of “Emmanuel, God with us.” The brief performance time makes this useful for Advent candlelighting moments. Duration: ca. 2:37.
