One of my favorite Christmas tunes, in the mysterious Mode I chant. Like How Joyful My Expressing, this piece comes in two versions: a hymn and an anthem. The hymn is just the basic Mode I melody with my own simple accompaniment. The anthem is for SATB, with a verse for men's voices, a verse for women's/boys' voices, an SATB verse to be sung a capella, and finally the full-blown final verse which ends in fortissitissimo (triple forte).
