Content  -  The annunciation: Gabriel tells Mary the astounding news that she is to have God’s child.  Beautifully written, with a lovely melody and simple harmonies, this is a great piece to perform at Christmas.  Ideal for young choirs and carol concerts, with verse one being an excellent solo opportunity (Angel Gabriel).


Lyrics sample


I know it’s a shock, it’s very strange

To find an angel here by your bed,

But please understand – I have great news.

Hear me out, take heed of what God said.

Sing with me now, Mary,

Come sing with me now.

I’m bringing great news for you:

Our God’s coming down!


He says you’ve been chosen for a role,

For a task you just won’t believe.

God has a message for us all,

Giving hope to those who will receive.

Sing with me now... (etc.)
