A short carol for Advent for SATB choir and organ, composed for a gathering of the London Composers Forum in 2013 and revised and extended in 2020. The setting begins in the somber key of A minor and touches on other keys before ending quietly on a chord of A major. The words reflect the expectant feeling during the weeks leading up to Christmas. The audio file was produced using NotePerformer 3.

"Long have we waited, as prophets foretold,

Lives will be changed, the meek and the bold.

When will we see this and where will it be?

And will I know how it changes me?

Patience and courage, spirit and heart,

Stand ready and willing to each take their part.


Long have we waited for this special day.

Ages have passed and melted away.

Who should we look for and what will we find?

Will there be signs for the deaf and the blind?

Now that the day dawns, bathed in new light,

The shadows have vanished and hope takes fresh flight.

And that dawn is nigh."
