This lilting Christmas song, based on a 15th-century German carol, is arranged in call-and-response style for solo voice and harmonized SATB choir, with organ (or piano) accompaniment. The solo voice part is pitched at mid-range and could be sung by soprano, alto, tenor, or bass. For variety, the solo voice part could also be doubled or performed solo by instruments such as violin, clarinet, flute, etc. Alternatively, the solo part could be sung by the congregation in unison, with the church choir providing the responses in harmony. The carol and accompaniment are easy and accessible for any choir. With the words for 8 verses included, this carol works well when a song of variable length is needed, such as for communion, a processional, or congregational candle-lighting. Liturgical use: Christmas, Advent.
