Written for the group Embellish this setting from Piae Cantiones (1582) is in shifting meter (mostly 3/2 to 2/2) and contrasting dynamic levels. Throughout the piece the plainchant-type melody is presented in octaves and then repeated with the octaves being filled in to make chords.Though not included, adding a oboe or reed instrument to the melody line would enhance this selections character.
