Personent Hodie
Arr. Lara G. Hoggard
SATB Chorus with Full Orchestra or Trumpets, Organ and Percussion accompaniment

This arrangement was created in the 1980s by master teacher and conductor Dr. Lara G. Hoggard, who was for many years Director of Choral Activities at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NC. The original setting was for SATB Chorus, 4 b-flat Trumpets, Organ and 2 Percussion. A full orchestral version of the work was created for use by the Dallas Symphony and Chorus some years following.

The original melody upon which this arrangement was part of a 1592 publication: Piæ Cantiones, and has often been included as part of Catholic liturgical observances since that time (especially during Advent).

In addition to the choral music and its accompaniment, the arranger created a very detailed set of instructions for the utilization of this piece as a processional – in church settings or in the concert hall – which are downloadable below.

In addition to the original SATB version of this work, the piece has also been re-voiced for TTBB chorus [RBM-005a].

Both the full orchestral accompaniment [RBM-216] and the trumpet, organ and percussion accompaniment [RBM-214] are available for purchase.
