Songs of Winter

Lo How A Rose E'er Blooming This arrangement combines the canon arrangement of Melchior Vulpius (1560 - 1615) with the Michael Praetorius four-part arrangement from 1609 with which were all much more familiar. Of course, Ive also made a few changes of my own. The melody dates from 1599 in Koln, Germany (Cologne). [2.5 MB]
Coventry Carol This is one of the most beautiful carols for winter. It sheds a poignant light on the schene when Herod's soldiers were sent to slay all young children in response to a mystic's prediction, echoing the acts of Pharoah at the time of Moses' birth. [1.7 MB]
