Written for the Advent season, this carol paraphrases the traditional German carol known as “O Come Little Children.” There is opportunity for some antiphonal singing, and the opening could also be used as a processional. While the range is not extreme, the tessitura tends to lie moderately high in the voice. A competent flutist is neded for the obbligato, but the flute and hand drum add a good deal of color to this arrangement, which lilts in the style of a Gothic dance.
