This christmas carol starts with the psalm 130, De profundis, which is sung for the second vespers of Christmas, and expresses the cry of the Christ, descended on earth, to his Father. It is followed by a tenor aria with some lyrics from the Gospel of Luke (2, 10), when the angel comes to announce the birth of Jesus. It is finally concluded by a very long fugue on the Psalm 117, Laudate Dominum Omnes Gentes, used as an antiphon during the Christmas liturgical time.
It was composed during summer 2018 and was created by the International Choir and Orchestra of Ho Chi Minh City on the 2nd and 3rd of December 2018.
