Brahms' voluptuous organ setting of this 14-th c. German carol, sung to "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming" in English, inspired this six-voice rendition that runs the gamut from sopranino to great bass. (A version transposed to include F-contrabass is available from the "Other Supplement" link below.) Octave doubling requires careful tuning, but the piece is otherwise uncomplicated. Duration: 1:45
The Prince Consort is heard on the accompanying recording.
-- Anthony St. Pierre
A cheery sopranino enhances this slow and easily enjoyed arrangement of a well-known German carol.
