This madrigal-style piece is a wonderful teaching tool and a perfect selection for opening your holiday concert. Processing or standing, a cappella or accompanied, the sensible vocal ranges and repetitive lines are tempting and entertaining for mixed choirs in middle school and high school. David Giardiniere has combined the familiar 19th-century text with the light and compelling music of Gastoldi's Il Bel Humore making a fine performance piece. Available: SATB, unaccompanied.
