Happy Holy Name of Jesus!
I’ve been hoping to sing Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming this Christmas season. This morning we had a bit of a practice, but my earlier version isn’t so clear for the Alto and Tenor voices, as they have some syncopation to fit words around.
So I found this one from CPDL with Lilypond source and happily edited the text to match the English version in our hymnbooks.
We’re also aiming to sing Jesu Rex Admirabilis.
UPDATE: Singing Jesu Rex Admirabilis went really well today, but Lo How a Rose was a bit shaky, so I’m saving it for next Sunday’s Sung Mass.
Being a Sung Mass, I needed to put it in Latin, so :

Here is my instructional video for the top melody line:
and here is another choir singing it:
and here’s a very nice version in a church:
