Description

A lovely late-Renaissance strophic piece featuring a dialogue between soloist and choir. SATB + soloist, a cappella

A child is born in Bethlehem, Alleluia!
Therefore rejoice, Jerusalem, Alleluia!
He lies within a manger small, Alleluia!
Who now on high reigns over all, Alleluia!

From eastern lands there came three kings, Alleluia!
Gold, incense, myrrh, the gifts they bring, Alleluia!
They entered slowly, one by one, Alleluia!
And worshipped there, God's only Son, Alleluia!

And so on this most blessed day, Alleluia!
We praise the Lord and sing alway, Alleluia!
So to the Father and the Son, Alleluia!
The Holy Spirit, Three in One, Alleluia!
