Infant Holy, Infant Lowly composed by David Hein. For SAT choir, piano, tambourine, hand drum and finger cymbals. Mixed Voices Series. Sacred Anthem, Christmas. Octavo. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGA1124).
This beautiful, graceful setting of the traditional Polish carol is ideally suited for young changing-voice choirs. Appropriate vocal ranges and accessible part writing allow developing mixed-voice choirs the opportunity to sing with confidence and success. Simulating a light Renaissance style, the anthem's middle section gives singers a chance to sing a cappella accompanied only by tambourine, hand drum and finger cymbals. The piece then concludes with a full, flowing piano accompaniment that artistically highlights the lush vocal harmonies. A hymn study and teaching plan for the anthem are available on the Choristers Guild website.
