Pearsall: "In dulci jubilo" (1834)

SOURCE:  digital scan of Carols for Choirs [1] (OUP, 1961).
Incidentally, the note at the bottom about the original line "My heart is sore for thee!" indicates that
Pearsall would have pronounced "parvule" with a long E sound,
thus preserving the rhyme throughout the second stanza.
Pearsall's commentary is not included with the setting in 100 Carols for Choirs (OUP, 1987),
although that edition notes that "Pearsall's manuscript has been consulted,"
and it footnotes some corrections to the 1961 text.
