This setting is based on a Christmas hymn by Johann Georg Ebeling (1637–1676) (cf. All this my heart rejoices in Carols for Choirs 2).
It can be sung just by Cantor and keyboard with the Congregation repeating the final phrase, by SATB choir. The repeat of the last phrase can be omitted with congregation either coming in on have mercy/grant us or they could sing the whole setting. There is a choice whether to introduce the Latin text at the end. Our experience is that it works better with it.
The setting has been approved for publication by the Department for Christian Life and Worship
