Ring in the sounds of this 13th-century Christmas hymn with a dazzling new arrangement from Nick Palmer. This piece features two solo voices, with the choir (and assembly, if desired) singing the refrain “In cordis jubilo.” The unchanging nature of the refrain makes this arrangement ideal for a processional.
