|Puer Natus est Nobis (V.118-2)
Introit for Christmas
Puer Natus is the entrance chant to Christmas services, and is set in a 2-part form, for choir (up to 4 part), organ and chimes/bells. In the first part the chant is intoned amid atmosphere created by the instruments; this is followed by the psalm (cantante Domino) set in a dancelike metered section. It can be performed effectively by any size choral forces, and allows the possibility of spatial performance realizations. The instruments are likewise optional, allowing for a variety of performance possibilities and ease of use by any size forces.
Ritual Chants are a collection of liturgical chants re-cast in a modern idiom, for use in church services or in concerts. Most are for specific services, while some are for general use. They are designed to be as practical as possible, thus allowing their performance by ensembles of wide ranging composition, ability level, and aesthetic direction (as is typical in today's church music ministries). Their intent is to embue the ancient chants with new vitality, and make them more engaging and accessible to modern ears.
