Since At Last He Came

By Marty Parks

Marty Parks has written a special Christmas anthem that expresses the feelings of anticipation and joy that surround the birth of Jesus. The text and lyrical melody explore the themes of waiting and wonder in the first verse, which contains mostly unison and simple harmonies. The verse builds to a memorable chorus, conveying the joy and relief of Christ's arrival. After a key change, the text shifts to an invitation to come, see, and worship the newborn King. Rich harmonies, punctuated by an energetic accompaniment, create excitement. The piece concludes quietly with unison singing. This piece would be ideal for Christmas Eve or special services because it is easy to prepare and perform, yet sounds rich and full.
