"Welcome All!" is a jovial, wassaillike piece that welcomes everyone "to our Christmas feast": the prophets, Elizabeth, John the Baptist, Anna, Simeon - even Herod! - and oh, all of us too!
The choral writing has a bell-like quality, especially the clusters at the final climax.
Definitely fun, and no other Christmas song like it!
