ARRANGER NOTES — Written in 1976, this chorus remains probably the most familiar praise & worship chorus used during the Advent season. Although the original harmonies are quite simple, several altered chords have been incorporated to give this arrangement a fuller sound. At bar 22 the song modulates a major 3rd higher to the key of E major. Even though there are four sharps in the key signature, this key ‘plays easily’ due to the same fingerings in its major scale as in the original key of C major. Remember to play with expression as you think the words: Emmanuel—God with us.
