Written for the Dale Warland Singers in 1998, Dr. Jennings’ work is for a cappella choir with flute or oboe accompaniment. The text is an elegant poem by Edmund Sears, better known for his carol “It Came Upon the Midnight Clear”. This work is not too difficult for choir or instrumentalist, and would be a beautifully expressive addition to any Christmas concert. Basses need a good low E-flat. Duration is 4-1/2 minutes.
