Prepare, for He Is Born!
Arr. Patrick M. Liebergen
SATB or 2-Part Mixed Choral Octavo
Incorporating "Joy to the World" and a chorus by George F. Handel
Here's a masterwork fanfare that really "rings in the season!" Patrick Liebergen has crafted an easily-prepared masterwork combining two Handel melodies, including "Joy to the World," with texts for both Advent and Christmas. The optional "ring and sing" handbell and solo trumpet parts add a festival touch without overwhelming the choir. A flexible, practical seasonal anthem for choirs both large and small. Suggested scriptures: Isaiah 40: 1-5, Psalm 96, Matthew 3: 1-12, Mark 1: 2-8, Luke 2: 1-20 & 3: 1-20.
