O Come, O Come Emmanuel
The beckoning text and mysterious flavor of this 12th century plainsong has made this a favorite advent piece for centuries. It is the new harmonies Petker introduces that separate this arrangement from others. Originally a piece for string orchestra it was first published for men's voices and has remained a favored choice for years. This new setting for SATB voices and organ is a welcomed revoicing for church and school choirs.
arr. Allan Robert Petker
