Ed Eicker approaches this gem of an English medieval carol with great respect for the historical style, while enhancing our experience with two simple percussion instruments and a dancing flute line. At the end of each verse, the unison burden is "Nova, nova" (News, news). This call leads into the refrain, which features the Latin wordplay "Ave fit ex Eva" or "Ave has been made from Eve." The lively rhythms and modal melody portray the story of the Annunciation with an ear-catching variety of voicings. Carl Dawn's adaptation of the fifteenth-century text also lends quality to this piece. With little rehearsal time, this worthy and delightful piece is ready to perform for Advent or any time we celebrate Mary’s role in salvation.
