Composed for the Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge, this Advent carol by Scottish composer Helen Grime is a setting of an anonymous 16th English text for four-part choir with limited divisi. Lasting around three minutes, the music evolves through a series of variations punctuated by a repeated refrain.
