for SATB, mezzo soprano solo, and organ with optional handbells
This is the central, slow movement of Bassi's larger work, Carol Symphony. The composer recommends that the overall presentation should be close to the folk tradition, so the soloist doesn't need a full operatic voice and may be amplified to achieve an easy balance.
An orchestral accompaniment to Carol Symphony is available on hire.
