Christ Be Born in Us
The text of the piece was inspired by a conviction that the deepest meanings of Advent/Christmas are alive and meaningful throughout the year. At the heart, the text is a prayer. Musically, the piece affords a great opportunity for each voice section to take turns sharing the melody. Though mostly homophonic, a countermelody is introduced first by the piano, and then reappears in the alto line midway through the piece, providing a nice contrast both texturally and lyrically. The piece builds to a dramatic climax in the final verse, and then scales back down for a contemplative finish. This piece works especially well in the season of Advent and Christmas, though it's themes resonate and would be appropriate throughout the church liturgical year.
