Original

People, Look East composed by Emily Maxson Porter. For organ. Advent. Difficult. Published by MorningStar Music Publishers. MN.12-126. "People, Look East a chorale prelude on BESANCON" was commissioned by the American Guild of Organists for the 2006 Biennial National Convention in Chicago, Illinois. This through-composed partita-like fantasy uses colorful jazz style harmonies to paint evocative images of this beautiful Advent hymn. In its entirety it serves well as either a concert piece or a service prelude. The composer gives specific suggestions for extracting a quiet prelude, voluntary, hymn introduction, or postlude for more practical service.
