The best way to describe this piece might be to call it a modern day Renaissance motet. Beginning with a Latin chant, then accompanied by a pedal tone, you may be convinced it is a song from the ages. But soon a solo quartet emerges, then the entire choir, and the modern day harmonies and rhythms ensue. But the character remains as an appropriate number for a madrigal dinner feast. Joyful and exuberant, this is a delightful Christmas selection for advanced high school and college choirs. Medium in difficulty.
