"Nu zijt wellekome" (Be welcome, Lord) is a traditional Christmas carol in the Dutch language. In fact, it is the oldest one known in the Dutch language.

I had a bit of fun yesterday and made a 4 voice pseudo fugue arrangement of it. (Or actually, only of the first half of the first verse. Perhaps I'll revisit this and use the second half of the verse too since it presents new melodic material and text)

There's a videoscore available here: - please use that if you want to listen.

UPDATE: fixed some errors, smoothened voices, added lyrics for the accompanying voices, improved the ending, removed all but one of the high B's in the soprano.
