This lively and rhythmic Christmas piece sets the well-known text by Isaac Watts. The music adopts a gospel style with much use of syncopation. Towards the end of the piece a fragment of the well-known setting of this text briefly appears in both the accompaniment and the soloist’s parts. The work was commissioned for the staff and parents’ choir, directed by David Gordon, to sing at the annual carol service of Diocesan School for Girls in Auckland.
