Instrumentation: SSAATTBB choir
Set of three pieces:
Written for the St. Joseph of Arimathea Choir, for an Advent concert immediately following Sung Compline, December 7, 2003
Advent Music is a unique set of three pieces written specifically for the Advent season, offering choirs a fresh addition to Christmas concert programming. From ancient roots in monophonic chant, to lush polyphony, buoyant counterpoint and subtle textures, these pieces take the listener on an exciting journey of contemporary vocal expression.
Though working together very effectively as a seamless set, all three pieces may also be performed individually. Please refer to each title for complete descriptions.
