An Advent Credo
Joseph Martin/arr. Brant Adams
- Shawnee Press
This is gorgeous! The promise of the coming Messiah is presented not in an anthem of longing, but in a bold statement of faith in the one who will come and bring an end to war and strife. Voices, piano and flute obbligato move lyrically through a lovely original melody, stopping along the way to intone excerpts of In the Bleak Midwinter.
For Advent season, with a wider vision of the future, this is an exceptionally strong anthem.
