O Come, Emmanuel
Composer:  Alan Bullard
Part/Version: Vocal score
Forces or Category: SATB & organ/piano/small orchestra/chamber group
Details: for SATB (with optional solos) and organ or piano or small orchestra or chamber group
O Come, Emmanuel is an Advent Celebration, suitable for both church and concert choirs. It is based on the 7 Great 'O' Antiphons, and fragments of the well-known plainsong hymn permeate the work. To these, Bullard has added settings of a number of other Advent texts and hymns, including the beautiful 'There is a rose-tree', a rousing setting of 'Chanticleer Carol', and new arrangements of 'Gabriel's Message' and 'Joy to the world!'. The work may be sung throughout by SATB choir, or a range of soloists may take some of the lines. The accompaniment - for organ or piano, or with small orchestra or chamber group - is equally flexible. A number of the movements make highly effective separate pieces and anthems. Written with the composer's long and practical experience, O Come, Emmanuel is a strikingly original work for Advent and Christmas that will enhance both liturgical celebrations and concert programmes at this time.
Orchestration: 1 fl, 1 ob, 1 cl in A, 1 bsn/bass cl, 1 tpt in B flat, 1 hn in F, and either string quintet (2 vlns, vla, vc, db), or string orchestra, or keyboard (pno/org). The keyboard part here is an alternative to the string parts, and not the same as the accompaniment in the vocal score.
