SATB Chorus


Catalogue #:ADY-052b
Duration:1' 45"

John Mason Neal’s text presents the Nativity of Christ in poetic metaphorical images that suggest more nearly a carol than a hymn. The three stanzas are parallel in structure but different in mood, which offers the basis of the musical setting. Unison and two-part passages lead to the full four-part setting in the last stanza. Easy and accessible for even small choirs.
