A best-seller in a new voicing, and the perfect work to add flourish and zest to a holiday concert. Its fanfare-like opening is followed by tuneful unison lines later repeated in canon. The familiar Latin texts, Hodie Christus Natus Est and Gloria in Excelsis Deo, Alleluia, frame a lilting middle section with English lyrics, leading to an uplifting ending. Also available: SATB (15/1164) and Three-part Mixed (15/1225H).
