Happy Advent and shortly Merry Christmas!  Today’s improvisation comes from the 4th Sunday in Advent with a very particular chant for this week.  The Rorate caeli comes from the Book of Isaiah 45:8.  “Let justice descend, you heavens, like dew from above, like gentle rain let the clouds drop it down.”  It’s a wonderful chant and is always a treat to improvise on such a great theme.

PS: I decided to add this comment: I REALLY WISH I had recorded the prelude.  I did this totally radical fugue on Veni, Veni Emmanuel; or O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.  I don’t like to admit that I did a better improv earlier, but I really did.  You should have been there; stretto and all.  I’ll leave it at that, since that happens to my brain A LOT. Some improvisation that I post is not NEARLY as good as something I did earlier.
