Sweet was the song was composed in 2003 as a commission from the Hampstead Chamber Choir and their then director, Eamonn Dougan. It is a short and simple SATB setting of a familiar Christmas text.

The Novello New Choral Series is an inspiring selection of new works from a range of contemporary composers, offering pieces for all types of choirs, including sacred and secular works from simple, four-part settings to more expansive, yet accessible, repertoire in an exciting variety of styles. This collection is perfect for choirs looking to broaden their repertoire and explore some of the best new music around.
