Christmas Sanctus

By Lee Dengler

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/christmas-sanctus-sheet-music/19774197?pf=1564

SATB choir and piano
Composed by Lee Dengler. The Lee Dengler Choral Series. Christmas, Sacred. Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.C5782).

Item Number: HP.C5782

Text by Susan Dengler. Scriptural Reference: Luke 2:14, Isaiah 6:3-4, Revelation 4:8.

This Christmas text combines the tender beauty of the nativity story with the age old grandeur of the Sanctus. The music weds the simplicity of the stable in Bethlehem to a deeply worshipful exaltation of the promised Savior. It builds in intensity through the final refrain, with an optional soprano descant which enhances its brilliance and then ends with an intimate, quiet final statement reflecting the awe felt by all who experience Christ's presence on earth.

    We have loved this song so much, we sang it two years in a row for our Christmas program. It sounds rich a full even with a smaller choir. This is one of our new favorite Christmas songs.

    Very easy to learn. You can bring your heart into this title by varying from piano to forte and change the speed. Very soft ending. Piano accompaniment is retty to play.

  • January 07, 2015 Simply beautiful

    This was a perfect choice for Christmas Eve for our small choir. It was relatively easily learned, but very worshipful. We have a violinist in the choir who played the melody of the introduction and the interlude, and also the descant part and continued to the end with his own...

    ad lib. It added a wonderful touch to the piece.

  • December 16, 2013 Truly beautiful

    We used this in our Christmas cantata service which took place yesterday (12/15/13). Our music director's choice of music this year was very strong - full of good stuff - but this was just about my favorite. The simplicity of it and the profound message are a great combination...

    . I would say it's not difficult but requires a delicate touch.
