Word Made Flesh is a setting of the mystical opening
of the gospel of St John: In the beginning was the word.... It was
commissioned by the Lymington Choral Society and first performed
by them under Peter Davies in December 2000. It is scored for SATB with chamber
ensemble using the same instrumentation (flute doubling piccolo, oboe, cello, harp,
chamber organ and timpani) as the small version of Rutter's Requiem, an ideal
companion piece, which was performed in the same program.
There are three entries for Word Made Flesh in the catalogue, so please make sure you know what you're ordering. This page shows the full score. In addition, there are vocal scores and instrumental parts available.
