A Lovely Piece of Christmas Music

   It's that time of year again--time to find some sort of new and refreshing Christmas music.  Many of you probably know this piece.   I may very well have performed this instrumentally before awhile back, but I do not recall seeing it as a hymn.  The lyrics are beautiful and haunting, and the late Renaissance texture is absolutely beautiful.  This piece is probably not in the top 10 performed pieces of Menno-Christmas-School-Holiday repertoire, so it  may be helpful as an addition to your own program this year.

 Oh yes, and it's quite past the date for being public domain.

Cheers,
Jeff
