This new setting nicely balances the familiar with the creative, all the while treating the beloved Holst tune (and the full five verses of the Rossetti text) in a fully idiomatic manner for unaccompanied SATB chorus (divisi). There are touches of humor in the arrangement (a baritone soloist appears right where you'd hope he'd be, and at one point the basses sing sotto voce "Go, angels go!") as well as a clear intention to paint the deeper meaning of the text. This is a great addition to your Christmas repertoire. Duration: 4:30   Part of the Lee Nelson Choral Series.
