After yesterday’s 11/10 loudissimo Adeste Fideles explosion, it seems right and meet to bring it down to a more human scale.
The oldest hymns, Christmas or otherwise, often have these delightfully higgledy, piggledy rhythms about them and complex harmony as compared to the Victorian straight 4/4, I VI V I. A prime example is Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming, a carol I loved instantly.
