Gabriel's message

First line:
The angel Gabriel from heaven came
composed as a Christmas present for Ruth Warland in 2001
author of text
translated from a Basque carol

Stephen Paulus was The Dale Warland Singers’ first composer-in-residence and he composed Gabriel’s message as a Christmas present to Dale Warland’s wife Ruth in 2001. It is a simple arrangement of the well-known Basque carol for choir and harp, and like any good arrangement the secret to its success lies in the original material in the accompaniment.
