Quem Pastoresfor mixed choir (SSAATTTBBB) & optional organ
Text: Latin (Anon 14th century)
Duration: 2'00''
Difficulty: 3/5
Use: Christmas

A close harmony arrangement of the traditional Christmas melody, with Latin text. The melody, shared by different voice parts, is accompanied by sustained, stirring harmonies in the remaining parts; perfect for a gentle interlude.

Text
Quem pastores laudavere,
quibus angeli dixere,
absit vobis jam timere,
natus est rex gloriæ.

Ad quem magi ambulabant,
aurum, thus, myrrham portabant,
immolabant hæc sincere
nato regi gloriæ.

Christo regi, Deo nato,
per Mariam nobis dato
merito resonet vere,
laus honor et gloriæ.

Nigel Short
Nigel Short studied singing and piano at the Royal College of Music. He has sung with The Tallis Scholars as well as being a member of the Westminster Abbey, then Westminster Cathedral choirs. He sang with the King’s Singers for seven years.

Nigel is the founder and director of the choir Tenebrae. His aim was to bring together what he loved best as a singer: the more passionate sounds of large cathedral choirs and the precision of ensembles like the King’s Singers. Its repertoire is eclectic with some ‘signature’ works which embrace theatrical elements. Since its debut performance in 2001 Tenebrae has given concerts throughout Europe, the USA and Bermuda. With them, Nigel has performed with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the English Concert. They record regularly for Signum Classics.

Nigel divides his time between directing Tenebrae and giving masterclasses and workshops for both professional and amateur vocal groups and choirs throughout Europe.
