Highly recommended! This beautiful Advent anthem opens quietly with unison men's voices singing an ancient carol. An interlude with narration (opt.) provides the perfect moment for an Advent candlelighting ceremony. Then the mood shifts to one of joyful anticipation as the choir sings the traditional American melody, Beach Spring, inventively paired with the familiar hymn text, Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus. Reproducible parts for children's choir and congregation are included!
