The words and music appeared first of all in Tudor times, though they derive from earlier Czech roots. The use of a synthesizer (warm pad) will enhance the introduction.
The men's opening stanza should be Gregorian in style followed by female voice duettists with a true "Chorister-like" pure , straight sound. Most of the piece is unaccompanied but this can aided by tambourine and a medieval drum (Tabor ).
