This lively setting in B flat major employs echoes of melodic material between upper and lower voice parts – an effect which is enjoyed by groups who struggle with part singing. Whilst the work can be sung entirely in unison, it breaks into four parts on the third line of verses and the fourth verse can be sung entirely in parts with its total contrast of melodic material. The piano part demands a reasonably competent player. The group which performed this last Christmas thoroughly enjoyed its lively nature.
