for SATB unaccompanied
A simple setting of this popular medieval Advent carol which has great originality and impact. The style is controlled, almost austere, and the effect is hypnotic. This is an unsettling but poignant piece that forces the listener to confront the mystery of Christ's coming foretold in the words.
