Hodie Christus Natus Est translates to "Today, Christ is born." Of all the "Hodie's" that I know of, this one is my absolute favorite. The original motet was written for 5 voices. This transcription for brass choir has 8 voices. The trombone parts were created to give the piece fullness, as they mimic the Trumpet 1 and 2 parts. The Euphonium and Tuba parts share a lot the same notes also, to help give the piece a solid "bottom". That said, this piece can be played with only 5 parts, but it sounds great with 8. This piece will help make your Christmas concert a very festive one!
