This Endris Night is a carol based on anonymous poem dating back to the fifteenth century. The text, consisting of six verses, is a dialogue between the mother Mary and the infant Jesus. Each verse has been given a slightly different harmonic treatment. A challenging piece, it features an unpredictable melodic direction and frequent meter changes. This Endris Night was the (tied) winner of the Amadeus Choir Christmas Carol Competition 1993 in the category of SATB with keyboard (Published Composer). It was performed in Toronto by the Amadeus Choir in Toronto during the same year, under the direction of its conductor, Lydia Adams.
