  • October 04, 2010 Other-worldly beauty

    This piece represents a seamless mix of ancient Gregorian chant and modern polyphony. In this quiet haunting music I experience the profound mystery expressed in John's prologue - "The Word became flesh and dwelled among us, and we saw his glory, the glory that he has from the Father as...

    only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth." I look forward to have my choir singing it again this Advent/Christmas.

  • February 15, 2008 Sublime Christmas Piece

    This is a gorgeous piece, but it must be performed a capella, and with the repeated notes in the melody, that isn't easy (thus the intermediate/advanced rating.) If your choir is up to the challenge, they will love it; if not, leave it on the shelf.

  • September 17, 2007 Simply Beautiful!

    A simple yet moving setting of the text from the Gospel of John, this piece is accessible for most high school and church choirs. It is not nearly as dissonant as is his more popular "Saul", and the harmonies are easier to sing in tune, especially for a younger ensemble...

    . The range keeps all voices fairly comfortable. It's a great piece for a winter concert or a festival and it should be in your library.
