This traditional setting of the Danish folk carol has been around forever, and is a wonderful introduction to a cappella singing. Beginning in unsion and quickly moving to four parts, the arrangement can also make use of a quartet or echo group if you wish. Although it is marked in 4/4, this anthem moves more gracefully in a relaxed two. This anthem is occasionally out-of-print, but is worth a little searching for.
