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 parts and vocal scores are available on hire/rental.
