Our Carol selected by BBC Radio 3
15th December 2010
 

  

The Friends of All Saints' Music have commissioned two carols from Sir Richard Rodney Bennett for our Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on Sunday 19 December at 6:00pm: The Holly and the Ivy and The Shepherd's Carol. The first of these has been chosen by BBC Radio 3 as one of their "Carols of 2010" in performances recorded by the BBC Singers under the directorship of Bob Chilcott. Mr Chilcott comments: "In Britain we are lucky that choirs are very open to singing new carols, and consequently our composers are very alive to this. It is always exciting to have a new raft of carols to perform as in this broadcast." Our choirs give the first performance of these Carols on Sunday, and The Holly and the Ivy will be broadcast at around 7:50am on Thursday 23 December.

Those wishing to attend the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols are

asked to arrive no later than 5:30pm to guarantee a seat. The service will also include congregational carols including Once in Royal David's city, O come all ye faithful, The Holly and the Ivy and Hark! the herald-angels sing, and the following choir carols:
 

  

In dulci jubilo - arr. Michael Bedford
The Holly and the Ivy - Sir Richard Rodney Bennett (world première)
The Shepherd's Carol- Sir Richard Rodney Bennett (world première)
Three Kings - Peter Cornelius arr. Ivor Atkins
Man be merry - Barry Ferguson
How beautiful are the feet from Messiah - G. F. Handel
Adam lay y-bounden - Boris Ord
Bogoroditse Dyevo from All-night Vigil - Sergei Rachmaninov
Shepherd's Pipe Carol - John Rutter
What sweeter music - John Rutter
Tomorrow shall be my dancing day - Carl Rütti
Jesus Christ the Apple Tree - Adrian Self
The Angel Gabriel - arr. Jack Spencer
The Word made Flesh - Philip Wilby
