"Incarnation" is intended to be a piece for mixed choir and concert band. It will be a sacred Christmas work, suitable for high schools and colleges, community ensembles, and churches with robust music programs.


Behold, the great Creator makes
Himself a house of clay,
A robe of human flesh He takes
To wear for endless day.

Hark, hark, the wise eternal Word
like a weak infant cries!
In form of servant is the Lord,
and God in cradle lies.

This wonder struck the world amazed,
it shook the starry frame;
The host of heaven stood and gazed,
then down in troops they came.

Glad shepherds ran to view this sight;
a choir of angels sings,
and eastern sages with delight
adore this King of kings.

Join then, all hearts that are not stone,
and all our voices prove,
to celebrate this holy One,
the God of peace and love.

- Thomas Pestel (1584-1659) alt.

Hello! I write music that I hope will engage with a broad range of listeners. I've written works for everything ranging from middle school band through professional symphony. I've written more choral music than for any other genre, for church choirs as well as college/university ensembles. My music is mostly self-published, but I also have works available from Alfred, Kjos, Lorenz, BRS Music and Pelican Music. Something I pride myself on is that while I am a musical artist, I'm also a regular guy. I will happily discuss classical music one minute and baseball/football the next! For more info on me and my music, you can visit my website: christeichler (dot) com. Thanks!

Over the years, I have commissioned several works from Christopher Teichler. His music is brilliantly written with beautiful, memorable melodies and interesting harmonies. He is a master of writing music that is both exciting for the performer and engaging for the audience. I can't recommend his works enough. More so, if you have the opportunity to work with him, take it. You'll rarely work with a finer musician or a kinder human being.
