This is the flyer for a concert coming up in Scotland which will include some compositions by my friend Peter Kwasniewsi. For one of those compositions, “David’s Town,” Peter wrote the music and then asked me to write the lyrics. My work is going to be sung in Scotland! For those who won’t be in Scotland that day, here is a recording by Matthew Curtis:
By the way, the liturgical seasons of Advent and Christmas emphasize three comings of Christ: his coming in the flesh long ago, his invisible coming in grace here and now when we celebrate the feast, and his future coming in glory. The three verses of “David’s Town” correspond to these three comings.
