General information

This collection brings together twelve richly varied carols by six British composers well known in the Edwardian era. Here are simple strophic carols with elegant melodies and rich in harmonic interest typical of the 'High Victorian' style. With a fascinating introduction to the carols and notes on sources and editorial policy, this collection restores a range of highly attractive carols to the repertoire, and as such will be welcomed by all mixed choirs looking to refresh their Christmas programmes.
