R. Graves: Calypso Carol (SATB)

Books | SATB

Catalogue No: BOE008106
Composer: R. Graves
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Calypso Carol, a three-verse Christmas song, is a joyous, upbeat seasonal tune that would be appropriate for student Choruses and amateur choirs alike. Calypso, like all Caribbean music, has its roots in Africa and underwent enormous transformation through the experiences of the people of Trinidad and Tobago, for whom it was a method of political expression. In the 1930’s, calypso rhythms entered popular music in the US and the West and then enjoyed a resurgence in the 1950’s and 1960’s, when Calypso Carol was penned by Richard Graves. Arranged for a mixed choir of SATB Voices with Piano accompaniment and Guitar chords.
