Paul Manz: E’en So, Lord Jesus, Quickly Come

December 18, 2010

Paul Manz (1919-2009) was an American Lutheran musician who wrote a great deal of imitation Baroque music.  Nevertheless, this motet of his is gorgeous and a classic, an example of the vitality of the music-making here in America.  We’ll sing it tomorrow at the end of Mass.  It’s a fitting way to bring Advent to a conclusion.
