Nearly every classically trained pastoral musician will recognize the tune by Philipp Nicolai and the harmonization of J. S. Bach. Lynn Trapp here offers the assembly a way to join in this venerable Advent hymn by providing them an appropriate (and familiar sounding) refrain to slip in between the major phrases of the hymn. The verses are sung by cantor or choir or both.
