Item Number: LO.10-4171L

A stunning work of extraordinary power, this inspired anthem begins with a haunting melody that underscores the yearning of "hearts weighed down by ancient grief and centuries of sorrow." The melody and lyrics gradually build to a dramatic climax of fulfillment that is found only in Emmanuel as His faithful people await "the day of His appearing.".

    With an almost haunting melody, this lovely piece has very meaningful words and is very different from the norm. It was not difficult to learn but took a little time to get the tone and overall quality to develop and mellow into what we wanted to achieve.

    My church choir loved this piece, and it moved some in the congregation to tears! The text is profound and moving, and the music complements it exquisitely. Wow--gems like this are rare.

    I don't know when an anthem has touched me as deeply as this anthem has. The words and musical arrangment truly speak to the deep longing that is in everyones heart for an answer to the emptiness in the human soul. Excellent piece for advent, we used it Dec...

    of 2011. Let your choir listen to it from this site on your computer and they will be eager to learn it with all it's nuances.

    This is a beautiful piece of music, and quite simple to learn and perform too. A lovely melody line, complimented by an evocative piano accompaniment

    We have been rehearsing this for the last three weeks, and will offer it on Sunday, December 1 (first week of Advent). It's musically inspiring - so much so that we ask to repeat singing it in practice. And the words are the perfect complement to the music. I know...

    that it will be a strong and beloved part of our Advent repetoire.
