This hymn was the first of my Advent harmonizations. This simple hymn tune can be difficult to sing with continuity due to the long phrases, which I’ve helped stagger a bit by adding offbeat anticipations to create suspensions. Enjoy.
I’ve decided that I’m going to try to put out some kind of compositional work every day. I’ll be adding a backlog of pieces, but for now, please enjoy this harmonization of “Veni Emmanuel.” Happy Advent, everyone.
