This flowing setting captures Herb Frombach's vivid Advent text images and conveys them with charming elegance, filling the listener with the restless anticipation and prayerful patience that are essential to the Advent journey. Mark's signature harmonic colors add delicate strokes of insight, and the lovely original opening section leads quite naturally to a middle verse of "Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus.".
