Christ’s Nativity (horn part)
Hard copy version available from JW Pepper
SATB, Horn | Text by Henry Vaughan (1621-1695), alt. | From Peter Hilliard comes this dynamic musical offering on a text by 17th-century metaphysical, Welsh poet Henry Vaughan. A simple melody is embellished throughout to underscore images from the text, and a horn obbligato sounds the clarion call (“Awake!”). Invest time rehearsing this breathtaking number with your choir—it is well worth the effort.
