Advent prose

composer
1983
author of text

 
The text of Judith Weir’s a cappella setting, anticipating the Messiah’s coming, is from the Book of Isaiah. The composer explains her piece ‘was written in 1983 and first performed by the Choir of Trinity College Cambridge’. Based on the mode i plainsong melody, the music swells from unison to eight-part harmony and back again.
