SAT(B)B and Organ. A beautiful 15th century evening hymn harmonized by Charles Wood and arranged by Robert Lehman. The first verse has divided basses. A lovely anthem for your Evensong service.
Light ever gladsome, of the eternal
Splendor supernal, holy and true;
Born of the Father, blest, we adore thee,
Falling before thee, Christ, Jesu.
Daytime is over, sunless is heaven;
Lamps of the even, glimmer and shine:
Father, and Son, and Spirit, we bless thee,
Worship, confess thee, Lord divine.
Son of the highest, thou the life-giver,
Art now and ever, worthy of praise:
Whence all thy creatures, lordly or lowly,
Antiphons holy, to thee we raise.
