Verbum Caro

This collection of well-known hymns and stunning choral reflections draw together members of all faith traditions.

"And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us..." –John 1:14

Originally conceived by Edward White Benson in 1880 for the Christmas Eve service, the future Archbishop of Canterbury created what has become one of the most widely recognized Christmas musical traditions.

A mixture of well-known hymns and stunning choral reflections on the Advent mysteries, this collection is a gift to all who love choral music. Useful as a listening resource for the person in the pew, Verbum Caro also gives choir directors an opportunity to enhance their repertoires for this holy season.
