A brand new arrangement for Double Reed quintet (Oboe, Cor Anglais, 2 Bassoons and Contrabassoon) of this well-known tune by Michael Praetorius.

It begins with an introduction of long notes, with the
final voices coalescing into one phrase of the melody before the setting
begins in earnest. The first section is repeated but in the third
verse, a fanfare idea is introduced which then permeates the final
verse, leading into a grand plagal cadence Amen. This piece is one of Praetorius’ best known Christmas pieces and this new arrangement adds sparkle to any Christmastime concert programme.

This tune is also known as “Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming” (Es Ist Ein Ros’ Entrsprungen).
