Peter Foggitt: A Christmas Lullaby

Books | Choral, SATB, Organ Accompaniment

Publisher: Stainer & Bell
Composer: Peter Foggitt
Series: Choral Now
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

An abundantly versatile composer, Peter Foggitt in A Christmas Lullaby tunes in to the spirit of minimalism that has inspired so much remarkable music since Tavener, Górecki and Pärt discovered a new gift to be simple in their ground-breaking works of the 1970s and 1980s. To the nativity scene painted in words by John Addington Symonds the unchanging-changing chords of the limpid accompaniment for Organ or Piano bring an aura of rapt intensity and communion. With the clarity of an icon, this is a cradle song for an infant king who is also the Prince of Peace and a child in a manger, and a study in expressive and disciplined singing for SATB chorus.
