Information

This is perhaps the simplest but the most beautiful of all the songs written by Paminutan. There can be no scene more wondrous and serene as the birth of the Christ child where the common shepherds and animals pay homage alongside the kings from the East and the host of angels from above.

Text in latin.

John August Pamintuan (b. 1972) is a renowned Philippine musician who has appeared as conductor and composer in four continents, and whose compositions are widely-sought for international competitions.
As a composer, John has written over 100 titles of compositions and arrangements of international and Filipino songs. His career was highlighted in 2005 when his research, the MOLBOG Suite, was presented by Jonathan Velasco in the Asian Music Seminar of the 7th World Choral Symposium in Kyoto, Japan. Over the last eight years, John August Pamintuan has written commissioned music for choirs around the world. In the words of Dr. Joel Navarro of Calvin College (Michigan, USA), ”John is a gifted singer, a skillful pianist, and a promising composer, and writes compositions that depict indigenous music practices and traditions that are given rich sonorities, rhythmic drive, effusion of character, and fervency of expression.”
