Prepare the Royal Highway reviewed in The Diapason

The October 2014 edition of The Diapason (an international journal devoted to the organ, harpsichord, carillon and church music) contains the following review of my advent anthem, “Prepare the Royal Highway” (SATB unaccompanied with tambourine):

This Swedish folk tune from the 17th century has a lilting 6/4 meter that dances along at a moderately fast pace. The choral parts, on two staves, maintain the simplicity and keep the folk spirit throughout while the tambourine adds to the energetic rhythm without intruding or dominating. Its music is on the back cover and as a separate line in the choral score.
