From the Press
This anthem, originally composed in 2006, will find its place in the Christmas repertoire of fine choral groups and a harpist of caliber and sensitivity. The congregational effect is astoundingly sublime.
–Sida Roberts. THE HYMN, Vol. 62, No. 2, Spring/Summer 2011
This is a setting of the familiar hymn with a beautifully constructed harp part. The composer has set the melody in each verse with a lovely diversity, concluding with a triumphant “our Lord Emmanuel.“ Harpists will love their part! Definitely worth a look.
