Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence
This is a reverent, haunting, and dramatic arrangement of the 16th century Advent carol, programmatically following the hymn text. With or without the optional cello, it will melt your heart. Use of traveling four-in-hand technique allows the ringer to sustain D5 as a pedal tone throughout first verse, as well as to perform a unique interlude of harmonic suspensions between verses and a spectacular descant on the final verse. 110 measures.
