My Lord Has Come (SATB)


Scored for: SATB a cappella
Level: Easy
Duration: 3 mins 30

Other Info: The original SATB version of My Lord Has Come was written in 2010 and included in Carols For Choirs 5 published by Oxford University Press.  This heartfelt setting of words by the composer begins with a pianissimo drone over which the sopranos introduce the expressive melody. With lush harmonies, moments of dynamic intensity, and an overriding sense of awe, it would make an ideal centrepiece for a Christmas or Epiphany concert or service. My Lord Has Come has been recorded by Tenebrae on their album The Call of Wisdom.

"This very intense, dramatic piece not only showed off the choir – especially the sopranos – at its best but was a demonstration of how a 21st century composer can respond to the Christmas story in a way which respects tradition whilst sounding totally fresh."  Melanie Eskenazi,, 2014

Shepherds, called by angels, called by love and angels:
No place for them but a stable.
My Lord has come.
Sages, searching for stars, searching for love in heaven;
No place for them but a stable.
My Lord has come.
His love will hold me, his love will cherish me, love will cradle me.
Lead me, lead me to see him, sages and shepherds and angels;
No place for me but a stable.
My Lord has come.
