Advent Organ Music: Part I

Once He Came in Blessing | No Wind at the Window | Lo, How a Rose E're Blooming 

Three prelude settings of Advent hymns arranged by Michael Burkhardt
Played by our Music Director, Libby Saxton:
Once He Came in Blessing | No Wind at the Window Lo, How a Rose E're Blooming 

Libby loves these settings by Michael Burkhardt. "Once He Came in Blessing" is a traditional Lutheran hymn about how Jesus came to save us. "No Wind at the Window" is a haunting Advent melody by John Bell about how the Angel Gabriel came to Mary and how she willingly said, "Yes." Lastly, this setting of "Lo, How a Rose E're Blooming" combines a bit of "O Come, O Come Emmanuel." It is a wonderful Advent song about how the Rose, the Emmanuel, the Love, the Lord is coming.
