Beckenhorst, 2016

A magical setting of the beloved English carol, for SATB with piano, optional percussion and string quartet, or full orchestra.

NOTE FOR ORCHESTRATION (copied from orchestral score): Piano and/or harp may be used with orch. Piano is best for high chords (i.e. m3-4, 8, etc), and may be needed for balance on triplets; harp should contribute wispy glissandi as marked, and may play cue-sized notes as desired, at conductor’s discretion. Conductor may ask one or the other to omit certain chords/passages if ensemble is a problem.

ERRATA: m.55 beat 3, TB text should be “all”.
