A fresh and unique new setting of this 14th century carol. Set for four part choir, a violin or flute soloist and piano. Here we have textural variety - a simple lyrical melody, at first in the sopranos in unison, then in two part, then in four part and constantly juxtaposed with the instrumental refrain echoing the famous 'in dulci jubilo' melody. The dotted rhythm of the accompaniment adds a lightness - is it the trotting donkey carrying Mary? Truly magical for any Christmas service.
