Description

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel is a Christian Hymn for Christmas and is a translation of the Latin hymn, Veni, Veni, Emmanuel with the origins of the text stretching back as far as at least the 15th Century.

In this realisation of the hymn, the melody and scoring is underpinned throughout by a tonic pedal and a relentless ostinato played on the vibraphone.  This provides an almost hypnotic and minimalistic quality, only moving away from this rigidity when the two choruses reveal themselves to the listener.
