Blessed Is the Lord
- Beckenhorst Press
Beginning with the angelic vision to Zacharias proclaiming the coming of the Christ child, this sweeping anthem builds in intensity as the message gains momentum and the time of the Incarnation approaches. Richly scored for mixed voices and piano, the work also includes obbligati for violin, cello and drum as well as a full orchestration, bringing a devout yet exciting welcome to the "Word made flesh."
