Description

SATB, Sop. solo, and keyboard. A wonderful arrangement of a traditional 15th-century English carol.

Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
This is the salutation of the angel Gabriel.

Tidings true there become new,
Sent from the Trinity
By Gabriel to Nazareth,
City of Galilee.
“A young maiden, a pure virgin,
By her humility
Shall now conceive the Person
Second in Deity.”

“Hail, Virgin celestial,
The meekest that ever was!
Hail, temple of the Deity!
Hail, mirror of all grace!
Hail, Virgin pure! I now assure,
Within a little space
You shall conceive and soon receive
The Savior of our race.”

Then the Virgin Mary
did answer most humbly:
“Whate'er my Lord’s commands may be
I will obey truly.”
The handmade of the Lord am I,
His servant most surely.
According to His gracious word
Be it done to me.
