This simple version of Personent Hodie was written for the Senior Choir of Hull Collegiate School, to be performed at their carol service in Holy Trinity Church, Hull on December 17th 2012. In contrast to the well-known mediaeval tune, mine is in a major key and places the stresses on slightly different syllables. It is suggested to keep the tempo at a speed which enables all the words to be clearly sung.
