A unison carol in German and English scored for unison choir, two violins, and a viola. The strings provide a lot of movement. Very festive.

"The instrumental parts, which add a festive character to the piece, are flexible: three violins; flute and two violins; flute or violin, violin and viola. It is possible to play the three instrumental parts on the organ; soft flute 8' and 4' are suggested." —William Tortolano
