Descant: exercise 39A treated as adding a chorale

I feel the supplied (crotchet =108) tempo marking is too slow for this carol, which is joyful with harmonic movement once in a bar.  So I have treated the tune as if an embellishment of an original chorale melody and supplied this, transposing down a tone to make the range convenient for chorister’s voices.

It would be interesting to try this cantus firmus in the men’s voice so avoiding one or two bare fourths.

Score:

Ex 39A descant chorale
