for SATB and piano
This tender Advent carol sets an original text by Charles Bennett that creates a sense of anticipation for the arrival of Jesus. Underpinned by a gently rippling piano part throughout, the piece opens with a simple choral melody that blossoms into expressive harmonies before the music gently fades away.
