Music by Gustaf Nordqvist
Arranged by Chris de Silva
Jul is a common name for Christmas in Scandinavian languages; in this case, Chris has taken a Swedish carol and provided a new text. This one just feels right in a dimly lit church on Christmas Eve! Taken from Chris’ new Christmas collection Mysterium.

Many of us know this Catalonian carol as one of Pablo Casal’s favorite recital encores. And yes, Chris includes a cello part! Bird song is hinted at in the soprano and alto sections. This piece is hauntingly beautiful and also from Mysterium.

While the manger nor the Christ child are named, there’s no doubt the message of this message is at the heart of the Christmas story. Useful throughout the liturgical year.
