This piece uses the traditional “Adam lay y-bounden” text familiar to most. It employs principally a 7/8 metrical scheme with some meter changes here and there. The trumpet obbligato is accessible to a good high school player and adds to the appeal of the work. The trumpet part is printed in C in the score, with a B-flat obbligato part included, and is a practice which ought to be adopted by all publishers when printing instrumental parts within the vocal score.
