Description/Remarks


PEL2012 Verbum Caro Factum Est (The Word made flesh), the mystical with the earthly, is suggested in the antiphonal nature of this work. The rhythmic and worldly immediacy of one choir is answered with the ethereal Alleluias of the other.

Commissioned by the Williams College Chamber Choir, Wayne Abercrombie, director.

__________________________________________________


Paul Halley, composer, writes: "Wayne Abercrombie commissioned this piece for his chamber choir at Williams College to be sung during the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols in the college chapel. The text comes from the ninth lesson taken from the first chapter of the Gospel According to St. John. The idea of the Word being made flesh suggested to me the marriage of the mystical with the earthly. Hence the use of the two choirs, one wordly and boisterous singing the main body of the text, and the other ethereal and distant singing the Alleluias. "

Verbum Caro Factum Est  

John 1:14

Verbum caro factum est
et habitavit in nobis; 
et vidimus gloriam ejus,
gloriam quasi unigeniti a Patre,
plenum gratiae et veritatis.
Alleluia.

Gloria Patri,
et Filio,
et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio,
et nunc,
et semper,
et in saecula saeculorum.

Amen.


The Word was made flesh
and dwelt among us;

and we beheld his glory,
the glory as of the only-begotten by the Father,
full of grace and truth.

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
is now,
and ever shall be,
world without end.

Amen
