Description

These words of this carol, full of colours and rich in symbolism, are from the Cherry Tree Carol, a popular folk carol telling a legend which goes back at least as far as the Coventry Mystery Plays. The piece receivedits first two performances on the same day, by Robinson College Choir and Clare College Choir, in Cambridge, and was later recorded by Robinson College Choir, conducted by Timothy Brown. The main tune should have an easy-goinglilt, which turns into light, sprightly dancing for the refrain.

An inspiring selection of new works from a range of contemporary composers, the Novello New Choral Series offers pieces for all types ofchoirs,including sacred and secular works from simple, four-part settings to more expansive, yet accessible, repertoire in an exciting variety of styles.
