This piece needs no introduction to most of you. For those that may have never performed this one-minute work for Christmas, give it a try. It should be taken at a brisk tempo, and it does contain a few difficult chords. It divides into eight parts in the ending section and contains high “A’s for the sopranos near the end. This piece works very well for any choir that can cover the eight parts and enjoy the Latin text.
