Description

SSATBB a cappella. A delightful gem by early-Renaissance composer Senfl (a contemporary of Josquin des Prez), wonderfully imitative of church-bell peals. Engiish text by Mark Schweizer.

Ding dong ding dong....
Awake, hail the morn,
Our Savior is born;
Ring out far and near,
Good news to hear;
Proclaim from the steeple,
Goodwill to all people;
The angels are singing
As bells are ringing;
As prophets foretold
In days of old;
With heaven and earth
Proclaim his holy birth;
Ring out for ay
On Christmas day.
