Programme Note
Peter Maxwell Davies One Star, at Last (1984)
Davies's carols have the exceedingly rare quality of being simple but not condescending, natural sounding but full of interest, beautiful but not sentimental. Their style is quite distinctive. Whether Latin or English, the texts come from medieval sources, and the music seems to strike back to the Middle Ages in its rhythmic life and its pure modality, though the common seconds and tritones make these very much twentieth-century pieces.
