English. Text Source: "Puer natus in Bethlehem," Latin hymn, 14th c., tr. Anonymous, alt.

This gently rocking 6/8 setting of the Puer natus in Bethlehem translation adopts a quasi-Celtic style that employs a device reminiscent of a Scotch "snap," as well as a verse in which the men's voices provide a drone to support the lyrical lines of the women's parts. A lovely piece to use when you have a string ensemble and wind players at your disposal.

Flute, oboe, string quintet and percussion parts are optional. Percussion part is for finger cymbals and wind chimes
