Review quote

Good Day, Sir Cristemas is an expression of exuberance. The strong organ opening against the choir singing in unison sets its vivacious mood, which is continued as the choir and organ then juxtapose one another and offset each other's rhythms. In spite of some sudden changes of tonality the choir lines are not that difficult, but a large sound to match a big acoustic and lots of energy would be essential for the performers. This is a rousing carol worth trying for th right occasion. * Music Teacher June 04 * Once mastered, it will make a tremendous piece d'occasion. * Church Music Quarterly Sept 04 * . . . a rousing three-minute piece that would star in a Christmas Eve or Christmas Day service. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer Oct 04 *show more

About Andrew Carter

Andrew Carter was born in 1939 into a Leicestershire family of tower and handbell ringers. Following a music degree at the University of Leeds, he joined York Minster Choir, and was subsequently Director of Music at the Bar Convent Grammar School, where he achieved his first successes as a choir trainer. His wealth of experience of directing both mixed-voice and upper-voice choirs has given him a deep understanding of the voice, expressed by a lyricism and sense of drama underpinned by distinctive, often bitter-sweet harmonies. His vast collection of anthems and Christmas carols, together with a substantial number of large-scale choral works, have earned him a reputation as one of Britain's most respected contemporary choral composers.show more
