About the Music
This simple round, suitable for Advent, Christmas, or Winter Solstice, sets William Austin’s text, “Hail, o Sun, o blessed light, sent to this world by night. Let thy rays and heav’nly pow’rs shine in these dark souls of ours.” I present the round in both a minor and a major key, with an optional pause in between for a spoken text interlude.
