Andrea Ramsey's arrangement of "Puer Natus Est" will be a unique addition to your Christmas repertoire. Based on a sixteenth-century plainchant, it creates a chance for your choir to sing beautifully in unison, allowing the singers and the listeners to focus on the text. The simple addition of handbells or handchimes, alternating between two chords, adds the perfect minimal touch to this piece. Use this as a procession, as an introduction into another piece, or on its own to reflect upon the birth of Jesus.
