Personent Hodie – Bassoon Quartet
Personent Hodie is a Christmas carol originally published in a 1582 Finnish song book, a volume of 73 Medieval songs with Latin texts. A melody found in a 1360 manuscript is highly similar, and it is from this manuscript that the song is usually dated.
It became more prominent in England after being arranged for unison voices and orchestra in 1916 by Gustav Holst. It was written in honor of St. Nicholas, and will add an international flavor to your Christmas concerts.
