All Hayle To The Dayes (v/vv, accomp)


A distinctively baroque setting of this highly unusual and all too rarely performed secular broadside carol (containing large vocal leaps) which celebrates all things seasonal away from the religious aspect. Originally with a large number of verses, four have been selected and are interweaved with countermelodies for a small gallery band of violin, bassoon and organ; a delightful and memorable addition to a Christmas concert.

Optional harmonies (in an SSA arrangement) are provided for the final verse.

[Price is for 6 copies, plus all instrumental parts, including performance licence.]
