The occasion for this new setting of a traditional English text was a request in 2003 from the Washington Cathedral Choral Society for a carol accompanied by brass ensemble and handbells (replaced by glockenspiel and tubular bells in this recording). The dedicatee was Dr J. Reilly Lewis, longtime director of the choir.
