This lilting and powerful anthem is set in 6/8 time and starts in d minor. The opening melody has a Celtic flair and is friendly, but some of the rhythms can be tricky on the first reading. The piano part will take some extra work for your accompanist. The flute part, (included in the octavo) while not essential, adds a nice sparkle. This not only is enjoyable for the congregation, but also is my choir’s all time favorite Advent anthem.
