The Snow Lay on the Ground
(Venite Adoremus Dominum). Composed by John Purifoy. Sacred Christmas Choral. 8 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.118955).
Item Number: HL.118955
The traditional Christmas text and new music combine to create an introspective work filled with reverent mystery and rich emotion. Set in a rocking 6/8 and minor mode, it opens with back and forth phrases leading into a contrasting homophonic section. Following a modulation, the original melodic material then returns for the final verse.
