Music by Ruth Elaine Schram
2 trumpets, 2 trombones, score
A fine setting of the familiar Latin "Hodie" text with much antiphonal or "echo" writing between the men's and women's voices. Energetic and driving from beginning to end, with one brief, soft, a cappella section. Add brass (SoundPax) for a festive Christmas feature. Excellent choral writing from Ruth Schram, a talented a fast-rising composer. InstruPax includes: director's score, 2 trumpets, 2 trombones.
