With cheerful abandon, this carol “re-tooling” is filled with sparkling grace! A new text for Advent brings this well-known English carol into liturgical use earlier in the season and connects Old Testament prophecy with Mary's jubilation. This unique perspective swirls with a dance-like theme that heightens the joyful spirit of the anthem. From the opening drone heard in the men's part there is innovation and beauty. Some optional a cappella moments offer sonic contrast with the lighter unison and 2-part episodes. Available separately: SATB, StudioTrax CD (Accomp., SplitTrax, Perf.), Orchestration (Score & Parts for Flute 1 & 2, Oboe, Clarinet 1 & 2, Bassoon, Horn 1 & 2, Trumpet 1-3, Trombone 1 & 2, Bass Trombone/Tuba, Timp, Percussion, Harp, Violin 1 & 2, Viola, Cello, Double Bass). Duration: ca. 3:13.
