From the cantata Little Lion, Little Lamb, the contours of this reimagined carol are fashioned with beautiful arching leaps, instantly endearing it to the listener. A good balance of unison and four-part writing expresses the miracle of the incarnation with sensitivity and sincere devotion. The B section offers some theater with distinctive layers of “Gloria” that crescendo with impressive impact. The final angelic proclamation fades into the Christmas sky with delicate and artful sonority. Heavenly!
