Linton: Oh Come, All Ye Faithful

0.99

“O Come, All Ye Faithful” was written in 1987 as the processional hymn for the Christmas Eve service at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Fairfield, Connecticut.

St. Timothy’s was a small, but affluent, country parish (the CEO of IBM was a former vestry warden) and many women of the congregation attended the midnight service in ball gowns, their husbands accompanying them in white tie and tails.  Diana Erdmann, a lyric soprano who had appeared with a number of opera companies, was a member of the parish and the arrangement, with its newly composed fourth verse and the following descant, were written for her and the quiet, but luxurious, service. — Michael Linton
