        This is an enjoyable SATB piece, due to personel (SAMen) available we had to work with SSA variation it worked well, but not quite the same.

        For an elderly choir this was easy to learn and beautiful to sing
        We had to turn the alto part into male voice but if could have got a 3 parter including a male voice would have been better. But it was lovely.

        Beautiful piece and well worth adding to a choir's Christmas repertoire.

        A lovely addition to any choir's Christmas Repertoire, but don't let it drag.

        Rutter's work is always superb and this three part version is ideal for my young choir. Some challenging parts but they love it.

        Very nice typically rutteresque piece! Some very nice tonic suspensions, sixteen bars of a cappella in the middle. Oh, just for your info, the refrain is based on "ave maria" (coming from northern ireland, some school choirs ...). Being a John Rutter piece, the parts are all nicely written, each with a good melodic sense.

        Brilliant carol to sing. My joint choir are really enjoying singing this piece together. Would highly recommend to people. Delivery arrived very quickly from Musicroom.

        This is really lovely with beautiful harmonies. It's not too hard and is just right for a concert or a church service.

        A beautiful, simple yet very effective piece. Do use it! Highly recommended.

        This is a lovely, gentle carol. Some of the quaver passages fot the 2nd sopranos and the altos are slightly tricky, but are manageable if the carol is taken at a steady pace. The overall sound is very effective and the parts work well together.

        Wunderschön. So liebt man John Rutter. Schon nach dem ersten Einstudieren entwickelt die Melodie sich zum Ohrwurm, auch wenn das wiederholene Ave Maria in der 3. Strophe etwas mehr Übung bedarf.
