Bryan Kelly’s choral music has enriched the repertoire of many choirs, who will be delighted by his latest carol Summer in Winter. The words, a prophetic text by the 17th-century Metaphysical poet Richard Crashaw, may also be used as a prayer within the Anglican Christmas liturgy.

A calm and reflective cradle song for SATB and organ, this charming piece moves strophically through quiet dissonances and shifting colours of major and minor chords to a softly radiant conclusion. Written for James Lancelot and the choir of Durham Cathedral, it will create a haven of musical repose within a sacred space, whether used as an anthem within Advent or Christmas services, or in a concert of seasonal music.
