All Await was commissioned by Trinity Presbyterian Church, Berwyn, Pennsylvania, in celebration of the churchA!a!!a!!s 150th anniversary. Nancy Gifford was asked to compose a celebratory piece for this occasion based on an Advent theme. The text was inspired by a fourth-century hymn of St. Ambrose of Milan, Veni, Redemptor gentium. In this context, All Await echoes elements of traditional western sacred music while using todayA!a!!a!!s language. Repetition and reinvention of these musical ideas follow, with marked contrasts in texture, dynamics, articulatio,n and expression. Short organ interludes occur throughout the piece, introducing new sections of choral music. This work ends with a short coda, closing with the words A!a!!A!All await,A!a!!A! sung by the chorus three times and answered by the organ. Duration: 3:30.
