Foggitt, Peter: A Christmas Lullaby (PRINTED VERSION)
This PRINTED version is available to purchase as a regular sheet music title for delivery by post.
An abundantly versatile composer, Peter Foggitt in A Christmas Lullaby tunes in to the spirit of minimalism that has inspired so much remarkable music since Tavener, Górecki and Pärt discovered a new gift to be simple in their ground-breaking works of the 1970s and 1980s. To the nativity scene painted in words by John Addington Symonds the unchanging-changing chords of the limpid accompaniment for organ or piano bring an aura of rapt intensity and communion. With the clarity of an icon, this is a cradle song for an infant king who is also the Prince of Peace and a child in a manger, and a study in expressive and disciplined singing for SATB chorus.
