There are many ways to present this multifaceted piece. A combination of texts and tunes from some of the most revered music for Advent, this contrapuntal work incorporates the tunes CONDITOR ALME SIDERUM in the tenor, STUTTGART in the C instrument part, and ES IST EIN’ ROS’ ENTSPRUNGEN in the alto and bass parts. The sopranos sing an original tune using the text of Veni, veni Emmanuel. Each part can be sung individually, together as a whole, or any combination in between.

Contents: melodies of ES IST EIN' ROS' ENTSPRUNGER; CONDITOR ALME SIDERUM; STUTTGART and an original tune for "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel."
