Description:
I started writing this arrangement of “Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful” when I was in college, while in my mid 20’s, so it is was begun more than 40 years ago!

It was quite a few years later, following getting married and moving across country to the Washington DC area that I added the other portions and only because the local choir director seemed willing to entertain using my arrangement as part of the church’s Christmas music program with the choir.

The introduction is done on the solo pedal and then builds up for the first verse with a key change.

Come and behold him,
Born the King of angels.
Oh come, let us adore him,

Glory in the highest;
...

The third verse is performed by men in the key of F, which sounds so wonderful following the previous high verse:
Yes, Lord, we greet thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be all glory giv’n;
Son of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing,
