"O Come, O Come Emmanuel" is an ancient Advent hymn. The lyrics date back to the 9th Century; the music was written as a plainsong in the 15th Century. We decided to post this today, which is the first Sunday in Advent 2005.

Advent is a time of spiritual preparation, a period of calm and thoughtfulness before Christmas.

"Emmanuel" is the first track on Splendor Bright, the Noel Project's Christmas CD. This is an unusual arrangement that blends several genres, including gospel. We hope you enjoy it.

Mystified: vocals
Tom Atwood: arrangement, keyboard, vocals.

O come, O come Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lowly exile here
Until the Son of God appear.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee,
O Israel!

O come, thou Dayspring from on high
and cheer us by thy drawing nigh;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
and death's dark shadow put to flight.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee,
O Israel!

O come, O come Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel

Ooo ... so Beautiful! A great song well performed. Yes you have such
wonderful voices, and you amaze me time after another by how you
can be so tight togehter. You are still working over distance, aren't

Also it is a great arrangement! So much different things happening and
yet it doesn't sound far-fetched or laboured. An adventure to hear.

If I would have one (very small) issue, it is that although GB-pack4 is
great, some of the instruments can still at times give a somewhat
artificaial expression which doesn't allways blend perfectly with the
rest, especially in such a first class production everything else. I am
thinking about some of the woodwinds ... dont know their names ...
maybe oboe(?) (But If this wasn't such a hi class production I would
never have minded or mentioned this tiny detail).

Nicely balanced
Verse one: Delicate as a light snowfall on a wistful day. A precious and
pure entreaty.

Verse two: Builds into a glorious, animated exhortation for a holy birth
that will purge darkness and longing, then falls back to introspective

Very nice Advent piece. Well-paced. Voices deftly supported by gentle
instrumentation. Magical.

Magical is right. I love the way the orchestration comes in so gently with the
bells and winds, after the beautiful "a cappella" solo by Mystified.

Nice vocal harmonies by Tom.

Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

Beautiful harp-and-bell tag.

Melody of intersection
A man, woman, brass, and iron.
Harmony that different element plays.
