Es ist ein Ros entsprungen

for SATB choir a cappella, by Anthony Ritchie. Opus 205

Programme Note

This arrangement of the Medieval carol was commissioned by Voices New Zealand for their mid-Winter Christmas-themed concert, 2019, directed by Karen Grylls. It uses two verses based on the 1599 Speyer version (put into modern German), plus a third verse by Friedrich Layriz, added in 1844. The first verse is then reprised, in freer form. The music should have a gentle flexibility in the tempo, in a similar manner to Gregorian chant.
