for SATB and piano or strings and harp This gentle carol, set to a beautiful text by Elizabeth Jennings, reflects upon the birth of Christ and the coming New Year. In a simple setting, Chilcott perfectly captures the warmth of the season, the wonder of this child's birth, and the significance of his coming into the world. This carol is also available for upper voices (SA).
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.
