The Sussex Mummers´Christmas carol

Traditional from Sussex

Baritone solo, SSAATTBB

Duration 4’30”

This is one of the most beautiful christmas carols I know. A solemn melody conveys a folk-poem that combines the joy of the birth of christ with the stark reality of His death. The song also expresses gratitude for having the privilege of celebrating christmas with a full cupboard, and in the path of Christ.

The arrangement utilizes four verses of the text. The first verse is for the soloist  alone. The arrangement then gradually builds up to eight part chorus. The arrangement can also be performed with a Female soloist.
