Description

Two-part treble voices and organ. A lovely setting of the (modernised) 15th-century Middle English Marian/Christmas hymn. Beautiful vocal writing.

I sing of a maiden that is makeless,
King of all kings to her son she ches.
He came all so still where his mother was,
As dew in April that falleth on the grass.
He came all so still to his mother's bower
As dew in April that falleth on the flower.
He came all so still where his mother lay
As dew in April that falleth on the spray.
Mother and maiden was never none but she.
Well may such a lady Goddes mother be.
