Gabriel Jackson's Ane Sang Of The Birth Of Christ for SATB and Organ.
Inspired by a 16th-century Scots text, Jackson has composed a memorable carol full of character and beauty. The choir is serenaded throughout by the Organ, which imitates the haunting qualities of the bagpipes - full of ornamentation and extemporized flourishes. In contrast, the vocal lines are written with daring purity of the kind found in the earliest forms of melody. Choirs will relish this very special carol.
