One of only a few pieces I have felt no shame bringing out for two consecutive years, this is a gorgeous carol ideal for boys’ voices. The lush, flowing lines help to feature the unique boychoir sound and the text setting provides conductors with countless opportunities to work on musical details that bring the piece to the next level. The composer led the Anacrusis Boys’ Honor Choir in this piece at the November convention at St. Olaf and reworked it to include changing voices as well. (Easy to Medium)
