A setting of some of the last sentences of the Bible from the Book of Revelation, perfect for Advent.
Written for choir and organ, this was a gift from Patrick to his alma mater of St Chad’s College, Durham University for the climax of their Advent Procession in Durham Cathedral.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
And the Spirit and the bride say,
And let him that heareth say,
And let him that is athirst,
Surely, I come quickly.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Words: Revelation 22: 13, 16, 17, 20 (King James Bible)
