Benjamin Britten: A Boy Was Born (SATB/Organ Accompaniment): SATB

Vocal Score | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Instrumentation SATB and Organ
Composer Benjamin Britten
Editor Ralph Vaughan Williams
Publisher Chester Music

Revised edition and Organ accompaniment.


The fair copy was completed on 31 May 1933. The first edition included a piano part for rehearsal only. OUP sought an estimate for printing offprints of all the individual movements in 1933, though only the theme and variations 3-5 were issued separately (see below). However, in 1938, 230 copies of variation 1 were produced especially for the Cambridge University Music Society. [OUP file 251] The work was revised in October 1955 for the performance by the Purcell Singers; [see notes to original Decca recording and BB to OUP, 16.07.1957 and date on 1958 edition] the optional organ part (edited by Ralph Downes) was added in 1957-58, and replaced the piano part in the score. [It was probably completed in late 1958: see IH to OUP: 13.02.1958 (OUP Archive)]
