Angel Gabriel, The
Arranger Jeffrey Honore juxtaposes the main title, based on a Basque carol, with a cantus firmus (bass line) on "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" in compound meter. The minor harmonies blend together wonderfully well. The tempo marking (dotted quarter = 69) is the cause for the level 5 rating, which otherwise would be a level 3. This piece is set in g minor and G Major and is 75 measures.
