Oratorio: Gabriel’s Song

This is the first draft of a new song for the Christmas Oratorio. ( My mind is bent on Heavenly Things at the moment. Just as well we are also writing Macbeth, for balance.) As usual, this may just be a poem, or it may be the actual lyrics. I haven’t shown it to Jools yet.

I have a feeling that it might be a bit too subversive. Even, dare I say it, a bit … feminist? Surely not.

 

Gabriel’s Song

Hail!

Hail to thee

Blessed among women.

 

You will bear

the Son

of Man;

the Son

of God;

God

Himself.

 

He who made you,

Who made the glory of heaven and earth,

You

will make him,

Oh, Mother of all creation.

 

Hail!

Hail to thee

Blessed among women.
