    A wonderful and attractive setting of Psalm 96 which the lectionary recommends for Christmas midnight mass and/or as a seasonal psalm throughout the Christmas season. Mellis stylistically adapted (in an upbeat 3/4 time!) the tradition carol Adeste fidelis for the refrain and added his own entirely newly composed...

    verses. This is a marvelous way to easily get full assembly participation and allow the cantor (and choir) to shine on the verses. Verse 3 comes out of nowhere with its brilliant choral harmonies and contrasting melodic elements. I highly recommend incorporating this interesting and enthusiastic setting into your Christmas repertoire!
