O Night

SATB with medium-voice solo and piano


O Night is a song about the birth of Christ.  This SATB piece begins with a medium-voice solo, then breaks into a quasi-canon in the choral voices.  The song finishes as it begins, with a solo voice imploring the audience to receive Christ the Lord.  The minimalistic accompaniment provides a starry backdrop for a song that expresses joy at the coming of the Savior.  It was written as a part of the 2010 Christmas cantata Come and Behold Him.  This standalone version contains different measure numbering from the original cantata score.
