Description

for SSAATTBB unaccompanied This is a truly beautiful addition to the Christmas repertory, setting a specially commissioned poem by Charles Bennett. The flexible metre creates a sense of movement, while the luscious harmonies and often-homophonic textures provide an anchor to the choral writing. The Rose in the Middle of Winter will appeal to all mixed-voice choirs looking for a poignant centrepiece for a Christmas concert or service.show more

Review quote

Another Bennett setting, The Rose in the Middle of Winter, was written to celebrate the 90th birthday of Sir David Willcocks. Its an attractive, light-footed setting and the delicate music surely shows Chilcotts affection for his choirmaster from many years ago. * John Quinn, MusicWeb International *show more
