Waiting for You

Waiting for You – a peaceful and contemplative anthem that invites us to spend the time of Advent not only waiting but also preparing our lives for the Christ Child. Opening with a unison statement of the melody, the anthem moves to a lovely four-part harmonization of the now familiar melody. Creatively playing on the word “waiting,” descending phrases move between the alto and tenor sections in the B section to emphasize the text “waiting for you.” An interchange between the men’s and women’s voices moves to the final ending.
