At day's end on the Third Sunday of Advent


An earlier post featured two settings for the text from Zechariah, Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! As Gaudete Sunday, the third of Advent, comes to a close I'm adding the classical version of this piece to the widget on the sidebar.

Brothers and sisters:
Rejoice in the Lord always.
I shall say it again: rejoice!
Your kindness should be known to all.
The Lord is near.
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
make your requests known to God.
Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:4-7
