    This is a lovely setting of this familiar Advent text and tune. Most of the interest comes from a lovely sparkling accompaniment and some rhythmic variation. It is a delight to sing and hear.

    I was fortunate enough to be put in touch with this magnificent composer and his works this past year through a mutual friend. When the Caramoor Festival asked me to program and perform a holiday concert, I wanted to bring in some fresh repertoire and Orem delivered big time. I...

    put together a set of his songs that included How Far Is It, Holy Innocents and Gabriel's Message to close. Gabriel's Message is a show stopper and a tremendous piece that shows off dynamic control and coloratura as well as some great high notes. The text could not be set better. The audiences gave a huge ovation every time.
