Hopson's arrangement retains the grace and charm of the original composition by Baroque composer Antonio Caldara. The vocal lines, supported by the piano accompaniment, begin softly, but gradually build to a full sound by the end. It is as if a herald, proclaiming the good news at dawn, rouses the sleeping townsfolk, who are now compelled to behold the salvation that has come for all!
