Hear the Word of the Lord
By Susan Bentall Boersma
This stirring anthem by David Lantz and Susan Bentall Boersma is a strong affirmation of faith for the Advent season. The declamatory writing woven through the entire piece, "Hear the Word of the Lord," calls on those who listen to prepare for the glory that will be revealed by the One who comes. The dramatic changes in the accompaniment and choral texture serve to further enhance the message of hope.
