O Come, O Come Emmanuel (with building intensity)

I pulled this from my collection of older recordings. It's kind of a sleeper with a major change near the end. Won't be everybody's "cup of tea."

Thank you for introducing this beautiful carol (new to me).  I enjoyed your arrangement with its building intensity to full orchestration.  Please relay my congratulations to your flautist, violinist, and horn player.  Happy Holidays, Royce.

Richard

Hi Royce well played, this is a Carol that don't seem to get much airing it is usually sung at church the night before Christmas Eve It is a lovely carol and I liked your take on it.

Here is a little background about the Carol:
This ancient advent hymn originated in part from the “Great ‘O’ Antiphons,” part of the medieval Roman Catholic Advent liturgy. On each day of the week leading up to Christmas, one responsive verse would be chanted, each including a different Old Testament name for the coming Messiah. When we sing each verse of this hymn, we acknowledge Christ as the fulfillment of these Old Testament prophesies. We sing this hymn in an already-but not yet-kingdom of God. Christ's first coming gives us a reason to rejoice again and again, yet we know that all is not well with the world. So along with our rejoicing, we plead using the words of this hymn that Christ would come again to perfectly fulfill the promise that all darkness will be turned to light. The original text created a reverse acrostic: “ero cras,” which means, “I shall be with you tomorrow.” That is the promise we hold to as we sing this beautiful hymn.
