This collection by Gerd-Peter Münden presents carols in new settings as a welcome addition to the Christmas literature and will enrich the repertoire of an adults’ or children’s choir.

- Well-known Advent and Christmas carols in new settings
- With texts in German and English
- With short Latin introductions as a part of each motet
- Ideal for a children’s or adults’ choir during the Christmas season

There comes a galley, laden / Es kommt ein Schiff, geladen
O saviour, open heaven’s gate / O Heiland, reiß die Himmel auf
O Lord, how shall I meet you / Wie soll ich dich empfangen
Angels from the realms of Glory / Hört der Engel helle Lieder
As I was watching o’er my sheep / Als ich bei meinen Schafen wacht
Good Christian men rejoice / Nun singet und seid froh
