James MacMillan: New-Made For A King

Books | SSAA, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Composer: James MacMillan
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

A setting of a nativity poem from "Her Maker’s Maker" by Michael Symmons Roberts, "New-made for a king" was commissioned by Andreas Klatt for Farnham Youth Choir. Scored mainly in four parts, the choral texture is homophonic, the harmony rich yet approachable by young performers, with a decorative piano accompaniment. In the mould of a lullaby, the piece’s over-riding calm is troubled towards the close by indistinct pp lontano interjections from the piano, in response to the poem’s portentous closing words.
