Verbum caro factum est

Verbum caro factum est The Word was made flesh
Et habitavit in nobis And lived with us
et vidimus gloriam ejus and we saw his glory,
gloriam quasi unigeniti a Patre the glory as of the only-begotten by the Father
plenum gratiæ et veritatis full of grace and truth.

I would like to suggext "Verbum Caro Factum Est" by Hans Leo Hassler. This Motet is in 6 part SSATBB. Afert a short antiphonal oppening this piece alternates btween a basic Homophonic structure intermingled with som polyphony. Very singable for a good HS choir and well worth the effort.
Available through varius publishers, but I prefer ARISTA PUB. Recorded by the Dale Warland Singers, a good source for a style and vocal model.
