Brother Heinrich's Christmas, a fable set to music by John Rutter, is performed by a narrator, mixed choir, and small orchestra. The bassoon plays a special part, while an oboe solo is the theme of the piece.
The lyrics are about Heinrich Suso, a 14th-century Dominican abbot, who according to legend, notated the carol In dulci jubilo after it had been sung to him by a band of angels; he is unexpectedly aided to finish it by Sigismund, his donkey.
