for SSA and piano Inspired by the simple directness of William Chatterton Dix's vivid, pictorial text, the composer explores the breadth of the choral canvas in this expressive and artful carol. The piece has a straightforward verse-chorus structure, with gentle development of the verse material and an effective motif to close each verse, making it accessible to and rewarding for choirs of all abilities. Also available in a version for mixed voices.

Review quote

Chapple's carol is set in triple time (rather than the compound time of the familiar Greensleeves to which these words are often set) and could be a useful carol for an upper-voices choir. * Gordon Appleton, Sunday by Sunday (CMQ), December 2016 *
