Changing meter in compound time, and open chordal texture is the majority of the bell score, which is called for in intervals throughout the anthem. Chromatic harmonies are sprinkled throughout the work lending a major/minor mixed feel to the piece. The original text is sandwiched between phrases of "Hodie, hodie Christus natus est." The choral parts are rated a level four and may be sung by S (S) A T (B) B. The bell score is included in the anthem folio.
