Christus Natus Est

Series: Gentry Publications Publisher: Gentry Publications Composer: Rosephanye Powell Author: Countee Cullen

This product has a minimum order quantity of five copies.

African-American poet Countee Cullen is the text source Rosephanye has chosen to set to music and one understands why when the words are read. The title is used as a litany response, “Christ is born today” to other words that lift up the downtrodden in stark words without apology. “Christ must and will come to his own” is how it ends. Rosephanye's music captures a flavor that respects the difficulties of her ethnic heritage. It is a wonderful and powerful statement in so many ways.

The Colorado all-state treble choir stood outside their hotel rooms, many stories high, singers at all levels, singing this arrangement into the attrium in the center. The sound was compelling and so it was recorded on someone's iPhone and posted on YouTube. Then it went viral. The next you know it was programmed for the ACDA National Convention. It is a stunning arrangement that builds just right.
