Piano Accompaniment, Two-Part Men's Choir - Early Intermediate - Digital Download
Composed by Medieval Latin Carol. Arranged by Gustav Holst, Laurie Betts Hughes. Romantic Period, Early Music, Contemporary Classical, Sacred, Christmas. Octavo. 7 pages. Published by Dandelion Music Press (S0.235887).

Item Number: S0.235887

With plenty of unison, conservative vocal range and tessitura, and guarded homorhythmic and polyphonic divisions, this piece would be great for either beginning men's choir or for the tenors and bass of your mixed choir to distinguish themselves on your Christmas concert or for a men's Advent or Christmas anthem.  Would also be an effective selection for men's ensemble or duet to take to Solo & Ensemble festival.

"Personent Hodie" is a Christmas carol originally published in the 1582 Finnish song book Piae Cantiones, a volume of 74 Medieval songs with Latin texts.  Arranged for unison voices and orchestra in 1916 by Gustav Holst (1874–1934),  it is often used as a processional hymn in church and cathedral services.  The text is translated by "James M. Joseph," a pseudonym of the composer Jane M. Joseph (1894–1929).

Also available in TBB voicing.
