Vespers Antiphon on Christmas Day

 
Speaking to a number of cathedral and school choir directors, I found that there was a perceived paucity of Christmas repertoire that was jolly, fast and uplifting. This jazzy 5/8 number has already been performed and recorded by a number of choirs, including the BBC Singers, who commissioned a special version with brass and percussion (available on request from Faber Music).
