The 14th-century carol, "Personent hodie," is both mysterious and powerful.

On This Day Earth Shall Ring---a festive processional on the ancient melody arranged by Scott Watson---explores both aspects. Beginning quietly, the modal tune emerges over a chant drone with rustic, medieval percussion. Before long, the piece takes on the joyous character alluded to in the tune's most familiar English text setting, "On This Day Earth Shall Ring" (written by composer, Jane Joseph, a student of Gustav Holst). As the work draws to an ebullient close, all the stops are pulled with resounding brass and ringing metallic percussion!

Whether used as a striking concert opener or a jubilant final selection, On This Day Earth Shall Ring will add festive elan to your winter/holiday program!

Grade 3.  (3:28)
