Performance Notes

From the beginning stages of its creation, Holy Light was designed to offer
flexibility for directors and choirs. It may be utilized as a complete service of
readings and carols; as a cycle of carols (the director may wish to choose excerpts from the collection) for concerts or pre-service music on Christmas Eve;
or as a collection from which individual anthems may be separately drawn.
Additional flexibility is offered with required performing forces. Several of
the movements invite the inclusion of either childrens choir or treble voices,
while others make provisions for the option of congregational participation.
There are three options for instrumental accompaniment:
Option 1
Choir, Brass Quintet, Percussion, *Handbells, **Organ, Piano,
opt. Childrens Choir
Option 2
Choir, Chamber Orchestra (Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon,
Horn, 2 Trumpets, 2 Trombones, Percussion, Strings) **Organ,
Piano, opt. *Handbells, opt. Harp, opt. Childrens Choir
Option 3
Choir, **Organ, Piano, opt. Childrens Choir

* The work calls for 3 octaves of handbells; additional octaves may be added
at the discretion of the director.
** When using Options 1 or 2, the organist plays from the organ score
found in the instrumental or orchestral parts. When using Option 3, the
organist plays from the choral score. The Postlude is performed only when
using Options 1 or 2.
A childrens choir part is available for download on the Holy Light product page
at www.morningstarmusic.com.
If a candlelighting ceremony is included in the service, it should take place
during Break Forth, O Beauteous Heavenly Light. See Leaders Guide for
further information.
All readings are taken from From Glory into Glory (MSM-90-42) by Susan
Palo Cherwien.

To my father,
The Rev. Dr. Clark E. Hobby,
who seeks to radiate Gods holy light every day of his life

Text: Traditional French, first published in Dom G. Legeays Nols anciens, 1875-1876; tr. anonymous (PD).
Tune: IL EST N, traditional French. What appears to be the first publication of this tune is in R. Grosjeans Airs des nol lorrain (1862), where it is
called Ancien air de chasse. It bears some resemblance to an old Normandy hunting tune Tte bizarde, although its quite possible that it really is an
18th-century piece in rustic style (PD).
