A baby so small, a message so great

A baby so small, a message so great (2011)
SATB and piano (or organ)
An expressive Christmas song setting a text by the composer. Contrasting gentle melodies and sparse piano writing with richly dramatic chords, it creates a real sense of anticipation for the arrival of Jesus.
” an undulating, rich work of crossover from the top drawer…. it takes a composer who knows how to write choral music which keeps your attention for an hour to get the miniatures right too.” – Thomas Lydon, Music Teacher
