O Come, O Come, Emmanuel







SKU: 41F180FH0281


O Come, O Come, Emmanuel arranged by Ann Cameron Pearce for Flute Choir
Scored for 5 C Flutes, optional alto and bass flutes.  Performance time: 3.5 minutes

This haunting modal melody has maintained its prominence during the advent season since its inception as a 15th century French plainsong. Here are four stanzas ranging from unison simplicity with full harmony refrains to flowing supportive lines. Five creative suggestions are included about performing it as a processional, thus thrilling the audience with “surround sound” and inspiring performers to sparkle. Scored for 5 C flutes, optional alto and bass. Performance time: 3.5 minutes.

This tune is known as Veni Emmanuel from a 15th century processional of French Franciscan nuns, but some sources also place its origins with 8th century Gregorian traditions.  It is based on seven antiphons (short anthems sung alternating with short spoken verses) that typically began the week before Christmas.  A haunting modal melody, it has maintained its prominence during the Advent season throughout the years.  Just as the choirs of that day typically sang alternating lines of a plainsong from opposite sides of the chancel, this arrangement can be performed as an antiphonal procession.
