O Come O Come Emmanuel
As we celebrate with adoration the birth of the Christ child, this lush offering is a gentle call to begin life anew at the foot of the manger. O Come, O Come, Emmanuel is skillfully combined with a second plainsong, Of the Father’s Love Begotten, creating an elegant beauty that will linger in hearts long after the final notes fade away. The unhurried legato style provides an excellent opportunity for expressive, sensitive ringing. This lovely medley is scored in g minor and G Major and is 75 measures in length.
