A peaceful, lilting triple meter creates a wonderful lullaby for Christmas Eve. But, in Rutter fashion the soaring chorus rises from the simple candlelight to a multitude of angels singing “Gloria”. This classic is a favorite of the choir with the wide range of dynamics and expression from peace to overwhelming joy.
