Description

for female vocalist, children's choir, SATB choir, piano, electric or string bass, brass, and percussion This richly expressive cantata sets five discrete texts, each reflecting a different aspect of Christmastide. The first movement sets a poem by Tennyson to an instantly memorable, eager melody. 'Good day, Sir Christemas', is a joyous, rollicking song for children's choir, followed by the wondrous 'This endris night' and the contemplative, wistful carol 'Put memory away'. The last movement is a funky, rocking celebration of the nativity. Very approachable and a huge joy to sing, this is an absolute must for Christmas concerts. Instrumental material and vocal scores are available on hire/rental.

About Author

Bob Chilcott has been involved with choral music all his life, first as a Chorister and then a Choral Scholar at King's College, Cambridge. Later, he sang and composed music for 12 years with the King's Singers. His experiences with that group, his passionate commitment to young and amateur choirs, and his profound belief that music can unite people, have inspired him both to compose full-time and, through proactive workshopping, to promote choral music worldwide.
