Beckenhorst, 2014

This thrilling carol arrangement begins with an ethereal hush and builds in momentum, invoking images of the angel hosts gathering into a multitude to announce Jesus’ birth. With just a few instrumental colors (violin, percussion, piano 4-hands) and some simple divisi, the work builds to a joyous invitation to “come and worship.”
