O Holy Night (vers. 2)

O Holy Night (arr. Feb. 2012) is an arrangement of the popular French carol in A major that is lyrically expressive and staunchly dramatic in its final entrance after the midpoint’s orchestral interlude.  In a somber 12/8, the arrangement contrasts dark textures with powerful harmonizations for optional backup choir that make this piece a spiritually uplifting and affirming song of hope and praise.
