With this hymn, we cross from the “Christmas” section of the Lutheran Service Book and Hymnal into the Epiphany section.
This hymn is fairly perfect. A sort of template for “Hymn-Ness” with its brevity and concise precision.

The usual, each clarinet part doubled and mixed across the sound field. Audacity “Medium Room” Reverb effect applied.
