And It Came to Pass is a canticle (a musical setting of a Biblical text, in this case from the Gospel of Luke) designed like a triptych painting, but in music, in which the “left panel” or Prologue of the piece proclaims the promise of a Savior who will bring peace; the “center panel”—the body of the work—shares the story of the birth of this Savior, Jesus; and the “right panel” or Epilogue of the piece confirms that the speaker has now seen that salvation, that with the holy birth the promise has been fulfilled. This piece was first performed as part of a Christmas season “Ceremony of Carols” celebration service and, as such, was initially conceived for use in a religious service; it could also, however, be successfully performed within a concert setting, as it is a work of musical storytelling. Duration: 15:00.
