This excerpt from the oratorio The Mysteries of Joy can stand alone as a Christmas anthem for ladies' or children's voices.
It sounds best with its original instrumentation (piano, flute and clarinet), but it has been performed to great acclaim with just piano accompaniment.
The librettist, Christopher Loveless, had the idea of using children's voices for this piece, creating a sense of innocent wonder at the moment of the Nativity. However, it is just as beautiful sung by more mature soprano and alto voices.
