Description:

A slow, gospel groove with an R & B feel complements this contemporary interpretation of the Annunciation. A series of multiple modulations build the excitement and drive the piece to its climactic resolution and Mary’s final yes—“Let it be according to your will.” The piece requires a strong soloist to rise above the choral parts. The addition of a rhythm section would enhance the performance of this Roger Holland original.
