Every stone shall cry

I came across this poem in an anthology of Christmas writing and was immediately struck by its rhythmic energy and brightness. The setting is an AABA song form and the jazzy block chords and added 9ths harmony reflect the joy of the Christmas message. The syncopated choir rhythms also make the text bounce along.
