Difficulty rating (1-5): 3

I wrote this piece while staying at the home of Raymond Fahrner and Elizabeth Green. Ray is the very fine music director of the Cambridge (MA) Madrigal Singers. Sherri, Aidan and I were in Boston for the premiere of my piece Esta Tarde, mi bien, which was the winning composition of the Cambridge Madrigal Singers 2004 Composition Competition. Ray and Elizabeth have twin daughters, Genevieve and Carolyn, who were four years old at the time, and quite fun little characters – so I thought I would like to write them a little piece.

Since then, the SATB version of this piece has been added in to a larger work, The Nativity of Our Lord.

Complete perusal score available upon request.


Angelus ad pastores ait,
annuncio vobis gadium magnum:
quia natus est vobis hodie
Salvator mundi,
Alleluia; Gloria in excelsis Deo;
et in terra pax hominibus
bonae voluntatis;

The Angel said to the shepherds,
I bring you tidings of great joy,
for unto you is born this day
the Savior of the world,
Alleluia; Glory to God in the highest,
and peace on earth
to men of good will;
