Advent Awakenings: Organ Settings for the Season
- In stock
I had written earlier collections published by Augsburg Fortress for both Christmas and Epiphany, but hadn’t yet explored the rich body of hymn tunes associated with Advent. What composer could resist scoring a new setting of VENI, EMMANUEL ? And doesn’t the Angel Gabriel with his trumpet call for a free-style trumpet voluntary? Even the lesser-known Advent tunes deserve a special place in organ literature. I hope the music in this volume will awaken the wonder and joy that embody the spirit of Advent.
