Instrumentation SATB and Organ
Composer Philip Wilby
Publisher Chester Music
Series Contemporary Church Music

Philip Wilby (b.1949), is a Yorkshire-based contemporary composer. Since 1990, he has been best known for his extensive and highly successful Brass Band repertoire, while maintaining a steady output of liturgical and choral work. His delightful carol The Word Made Flesh was written in 1987 for the choir of Bradford Cathedral. The lyrics are taken from the poem by Ben Jonson (c.1573-1637), “I Sing The Birth Was Born Tonight” (c.1600, but published posthumously), which reflects on the nativity scene.

The carol is scored for SATB with an organ accompaniment, and is of approx. 3 minutes duration.

Near Pau, SW France GB Amateur musician and singer
This is a beautifully and skillfully written setting of Ben Jonson's poem, "I sing the birth was born tonight." The harmonies are superb with many suspensions, but not too difficult for a reasonably competent choir, and the melody haunting and eminently singable. It deserves wider popularity.

A truly beautiful carol which can tackled by choirs with only limited experience. Really loved by choir and congregation alike.
