Verbum caro factum est
Strimple - Verbo caro factum est
This little Christmas motet, the Responsory to the eighth Lesson of Second Vespers on Christmas, was composed in honor of the Rev. Dr. Vahe Simonian. A setting of John 1:14 sung in Latin, it is through-composed in the Renaissance manner, with each new phrase of text being ushered-in by a new musical idea.
