This short Christmas setting was requested for Bella Voce, one of the choirs in the Junior School at Diocesan School for Girls, Auckland. The music makes much use of canons as a simple way to achieve a two-part texture.
The short text is by Marion Schoeberlein, an American writer and poet who has featured in a number of anthologies. It suggests that some of the traditional images of Christmas are an essential part of the experience of Christmas day.
Written for Bella Voce of Junior School at Diocesan School for Girls Auckland Diocesan for their 2006 carol service
