Arrangement for four-part chorus and piano of Sir John Frederick Bridge's "The Cradle of Christ." The lyrics are taken from a thirteenth century Latin hymn by Jacopone da Todi, translated in 1866 by Rev. Dr. John Mason Neale. The work was composed for the 1894 Hereford Musical Festival, and was dedicated to Rev. George Prothero, the Sub-dean of Westminster Abbey. This arrangement is for a four-part chorus of soprano, alto, tenor, and bass voice parts, with soprano and baritone solos.
