Lullay, my liking is scored for accompanied two-part choir, allowing for various upper-/lower-voice combinations: two-part trebles or sopranos, upper voices only (S/A), or men only (T/B). If performed by a four-part choir, sopranos and tenors should read the upper line, and altos and basses read the lower. The keyboard part can be played on piano or organ, or harp.
An inspiring selection of new works from a range of contemporary composers, the Novello New Choral Series offers 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.
