Review quote

The text urges the shepherds to hurry to the manger; the catchy melody has an obsessive, driving rhythm which is simply and effectively arranged. * Church Music Quarterly Dec 03 * The traditional melody is very simple and has the feel of a lullaby, but in true Latin American style is set at a rousing tempo, with richly coloured harmonies to suit the style. The central section contrasts with the rest as it is sung a cappella and set slower with rubato, allowing one to indulge in its chromaticism . . . This would provide an exciting contrast to your Christmas programme which both choir and audience would enjoy. * Music Teacher June 2004 *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
