The Word Made Flesh


By Tim Rogers

SKU: 010035 Category:


This piece for organ explores Advent and Christmas themes, offering a reflection on the Christian mysteries through its music. Musical ideas draw from a verse in the Bible, St John 1.14: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory of the only begotten Father,) full of grace and truth. The initial theme is based on a musically notated version of ‘Word’. Similarly, there are associated chords notated from the names of ‘God’ and ‘Jesus’. Collectively, the intention is to emphasise the proclamation of John, the apostle, that the Word of God is Jesus, and Jesus is God. There are also melodic quotations from ‘Piae Cantiones, Theoderici Petri Nylandensis’, 1582, associated to the words, ‘Of the Father’s heart begotten’.
