Duration: 3.5 mins
Other Info: Commissioned in 2017 for St Asaph Cathedral Choir, Wales, Let us go to Bethlehem is an engaging and gently flowing setting of words adapted from Luke 2:15, full of joy and sparkling energy. Will Todd’s melodic craftsmanship is present as the sopranos set the joyful tone before the lower parts introduce the composer’s stylistic harmonies. Homophonic sections are contrasted with clever interplay between the parts, underpinned by a supportive and approachable organ part. An uplifting addition to the contemporary Christmas carol repertoire, which intermediate choirs should get to grips with quite quickly.
Let us go to Bethlehem
And see this wond’rous thing,
See this thing that has happened,
Which the Lord has made known to us.
