Comments for this piece:
From Claire: So beautiful! Thank you for sharing! I am planning on using this for my ward choir this Christmas. We will immediately lead into 2 verses of Oh Come All Ye Faithful, the congregation to join on the 3rd verse. I am arranging verse 1 and 2, but I am not terribly skilled with writing accompaniment so it may end up be partially acapella. I think your Intonation will be the perfect balance of new and familiar and it is so beautiful! I can't wait to share it with my ward!
4.0 stars.

More about Chad Staten:
<PLEASE NOTE: I am migrating over to my own website. Please visit chadstatenmusic.com for access to more materials. Thanks!> Chad (Staten rhymes with Dayton) started on the violin in third grade in Logan, UT. At the age of eight, he sang in a stake primary children's choir at the Logan Tabernacle. This first real encounter with the organ deeply impressed him, and cemented in his mind a desire to play the organ. After his family moved to Beeville, a small town 60 miles from anywhere in south Texas during fifth grade, he switched to the piano because of limited orchestra resources in town. Chad was called to be a ward organist and choir accompanist starting in high school, and has served in those positions almost continuously ever since. He was an Organ Performance and Pedagogy major at BYU, where he studied with Richard Elliott, and played harpsichord and other instruments in the Early Music Ensemble under the direction of Doug Bush. He currently serves as a Guest Organist on Temple Square in Salt Lake City. Chad loves to compose, particularly for choir and organ. To support his music addiction, he works as an airline pilot and enjoys playing many different pipe organs at various destinations in the United States and Canada.

Song background:

This is an "intonation" — an introduction of sorts to help establish the key — for O Come, All Ye Faithful. You can perform it with solo or ensemble voices. Get two or more members of your choir to sing this before the choir and/or congregation sing O Come, All Ye Faithful. You can employ a second person at the organ to support the voice(s) with the melody on a separate manual, if desired/needed. (The audio sample is just a basic exported file from Sibelius music publishing software, so you can get an idea what it sounds like.)
