Composer: Capel Bond (1730 - 1790)
Lyrics: Luke ch.1 & 2
An anthem for Christmas Day. Bond was one of the pillars of mid-eighteenth century musical life in Coventry (as organist of the church that was to become the Cathedral) and Birmingham. His "Six Anthems in score", 1769 were sufficiently popular to run to six editions. They were written for parishes with organ (the bass line is also figured), but the composer's directions imply that they could also be performed unaccompanied.
