Before the Marvel of This Night

Before the Marvel of This Night

“Before the marvel of this night, Adoring, fold your wings and bow, Then tear the sky apart with light and with your news the world endow. Proclaim the birth of Christ and peace..." Jaroslav Vajda’s beautiful text is matched by the breath-taking lyricism of Carl Schalk’s music. A perennial favorite for the Advent and Christmas season and one of our best-selling anthems. The choral score is accompanied by organ, while the Full Score includes parts for Strings, Flute/Oboe, and French horn in place of the organ accompaniment.

For a simplified 2-part choral version, see the Augsburg Easy Choirbook Vol. 1.
