    This gentle, lovely anthem perfectly captures the antiphonal style popular in Moravian churches in the 18th and 19th centuries. A quartet of SATB voices sets the theme, echoed throughout by the full chorus. The accompaniment works well on organ, piano or with available instrumental parts. This edition has both English...

    and German verses. Since the anthem is relatively short, music directors may easily choose to perform both languages. This is an excellent choice for Christmas Eve services in congregations, large and small, that enjoy accessible music in the classical style. Hear a fine recording of this and other Moravian pieces on the CD SING O YE HEAVENS from the Bach Festival Society in Florida, in partnership with the Moravian Music Foundation.
