Programme Note
Giles Swayne Four Christmas Carols
1. Starlight
2. The two Nowells
3. Joseph's Carol
4. The Coventry Carol

Four carols that demonstrate the contrasting, joyful and much admired facets of Giles Swayne's unmistakeable choral music world: at once plain-speaking, challenging and intense yet witty and tuneful. The Four Christmas Carols were written over several years, the first three for voices and accompaniment, performable by the whole assembly and immediately appealing. The fourth is cast in a different mould, bigger, more expansive and worth the extra rehearsal time for the committed mixed voice choir and accompanist.
