Voicing: SATB a cappella
Duration: 2' 25"
In this lively 6/8 setting, Ian explores a macaronic 15th-century text ('A Patre Unigenitus/Through a maiden is come'), with its exclamations of 'Eya!' reinforcing festive celebration. Featuring modal harmonies and energetic rhythms, this carol promises to be a fresh, uplifting, and accessible addition to any Christmas programme.
Listen to a performance by The Oxford Choir conducted by Bob Chilcott.
