Approaching the Manger    by Kristopher Fulton


SSATB    $2.35    CP 1112 
(see the score while you listen)  duration - 2:00

Commissioned and recorded by Bruce Pullan and the UBC University Singers, this composition sets the Christmas story to a "breathless" 7/8 rhythm, culminating in a joyous crescendo of "bless this heavenly boy".



Llega la Hora    by Kristopher Fulton


SSATB    $2.35   CP 1113 
(see the score while you listen)  duration - 5:35

Translated as the "Hour of Forgetting", the profound lyrics by Kico Gonzales-Risso (in Spanish) depict a world of darkness and forgetting - Alzheimer’s. This mood is masterfully captured by K. Fulton in a slow, but dramatic and often dissonant work. He creates strong feelings of tension, that dissipate finally with the words "time is receding".
