For 2-Part Choir with Organ and violin + oboe (or other C instruments) - a new edition of an SJMP classic, from Richard's larger work, A Little Advent Music. A delightful setting of the old carol with a short instrumental prelude. Can be used as a vocal solo, duet or two-part choir (have different singers each take a verse), or with your children's choir.
Come, thou Redeemer of the earth,
And manifest thy virgin birth:
Let every age adoring fall,
such birth befits the God of all.
Thy cradle here shall glitter bright,
And darkness glow with newborn light,
No more shall night extinguish day,
Where love's bright beams their power display.
O Jesu, virgin born to thee,
eternal praise and glory be,
When with the Father we adore,
And Holy Spirit evermore. Amen.
