Philippians 2 and Antiphon for Advent IV

The Lord will surely come is one of Hancock’s pieces to have established a secure place in the American Episcopal canon. It dates from 1990, and was a commission by First Wayne United Church of Fort Wayne, Indiana, in honour of John Loessi (1930-1993), on the 25th anniversary of his association with its music program. Framed by invocations of a penitential ‘Kyrie eleison’, the central text is taken from Philippians, the Benedictus Antiphon for Advent 4, while the familiar plainchant ‘Conditor alme siderum’ melody gives rise to all the melodic material.
