From Praetorius' Musae Sioniae of 1609, this charming Christmas partsong celebrates the Nativity with a simple verse/refrain structure. Ideal for developing the imitative vocal style of the Renaissance, it offers opportunities for displaying crisp diction and sharp dynamic contrasts. Duration: ca. 1:20.
