Paul Mealor: Behold A Tender Babe

Books | SATB

Catalogue No: NOV295350
Composer: Paul Mealor
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Paul Mealor's Behold A Tender Babe is a work for Unaccompanied SATB Choir, commissioned by the Hauser-Oberschneider family to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Summer Fields School. The work sets extracts from Robert Southwell's 'In Freezing Winter Night', and lasts around 4 minutes.

A review in the September 2016 issue of Organist's Review states that the "music responds sensitively and dramatically to the lines of the lyric it chooses to set, rising triumphantly at the words "with joy approach" before gently falling away as it repeatedly insists "behold a tender babe"."
