About In His Own Words
In His Own Words Cover Art

The Word Became Flesh is a musical exploration of the doc-trine of the Incarnation. The musical score is epic in scope and contains a beautiful balance of familiar hymns and Christmas carols with new choral compositions. The underscored narratives are adapted from Scripture and are presented in an accessible and dramatic way.

The Word Became Flesh begins with creation and God’s perfect plan for fellowship with mankind. This divine plan, interrupted by The Fall, continues with God promising a Savior who will save His people from their sins. The story ends with a glorious celebration of the birth of this Savior, Jesus, the Word Incarnate.

 
Versatile Choral Music
 

One of the unique things about The Word Became Flesh is that there are no choral books. Instead, you get all ten (individual) choral pieces in a discounted anthem bundle for only $10.00. This gives you the flexibility to perform these choral pieces individually or as a complete work, as opposed to having them bound together in a choral book.  To buy these anthems individually would cost $16.10, so it’s a significant (38%) savings as well.

If you want to perform The Word Became Flesh as a complete work, then you also need to purchase the director/accompanist/narrator edition which comes in a spiral-bound 8.5 X 11 format.  This format makes it easy to lay flat on a music stand or piano and is also larger than the standard anthem size (a real life-saver for senior-adult choir members).  This edition contains all of the choral music, under-scores, narrations, as well as director's notes and suggestions.

  In His Own Words Director's Edition
Adaptable Orchestration
 

A unique feature of The Word Became Flesh orchestration is that it can be played with a full orchestra or a chamber orchestra. When using a chamber group, the Organ Supplemental Edition ($50) supplements a smaller string section and also replaces the trumpet, trombone, and tuba parts in the full orchestra score. This allows the same parts, from the full orchestral score, to be used as a smaller ensemble.

In addition to the original instrumentation of the score, The Word Became Flesh orchestration also contains skillfully crafted supplemental parts for additional instruments such as Alto, Tenor and Bari Sax, Bass Clarinet, Flugel Horn, and synth string reduction.

About the Recording
 
The Word Became Flesh recording features exquisite performances by The Nashville String Machine and the New Cumberland Singers. To preserve the natural acoustic sound of a live orchestral/choral performance, the sessions were recorded at Black Bird and OceanWay studios in Nashville using a decca tree microphone configuration. This approach best preserves the excitment and subtlety of the musical score.
