Here's another fine 2-part work from Mary Donnelly and George Strid. The melody of this "walking tempo" Christmas piece is based on the Mixolydian mode (flat 7th). There's some vocal independence but the two parts sing together, rhythmically, for much of the piece. The final chorus includes a descant.
