This Fantasia is founded on the following traditional English carols: The Truth Sent From Above (Herefordshire) words and tune; Come All You Worthy Gentlemen (Somerset) words and tune; On Christmas Night (Sussex) words and tune; There Is A Fountain (Herefordshire) tune only; together with fragments of other well-known carol tunes.

The work is scored for ordinary full Orchestra with Organ and set of bells (ad lib.), or String Orchestra with Organ or Piano. Alternatively, it may be accompanied by Organ or Piano alone, played from the Vocal score, with an optional solo Cello part (H212). A chorus part for performance by solo Baritone and TTBB is also available (W41).

The chorus is required to sing in four different ways:
1. Singing the words.
2. Singing with closed lips.
3. Singing 'Ah'.
4. Singing with half-closed lips i.e. with a short 'u' sound as in the word 'but'.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating Generally a well set out score, although some pages seemed a little cramped.
Very good cover - suits the title and time of year for this work.

Customer Rating This piece emphasises the so;o role, and uses the choral section as vocal support in some parts.
Familiar themes from well known carols will be recognised by singers and audience. Overall a well balanced and enjoyable work.

Customer Rating Lovely clear dark print, easy to work from.
