A delightful Neapolitan carol that is not nearly as well known as it should be. I’ve already posted an instrumental arrangement; but this setting for 4-part choir will, I hope, bring it to a wider audience. The organ supplies the drone, while the singers register their joy at Christ’s birth. My wife, Mary, translated; I have appended the original dialect text for those who wish to try singing it in Italian.
