For SSA and piano
On this day is a bright and exuberant upper-voice setting of the English version of 'Personent hodie' from Piae Cantiones (1582). The text and the manageable vocal parts make this carol particularly suitable for children's voices, but it could equally be sung by adult choirs. The piano part, featuring bell-like passages and a driving momentum, contributes to an overall sense of jubilation. An excellent addition to any carol service or concert.
