By Bob Chilcott
for SATB unaccompanied and optional flute
This warm and tender carol sets an evocative text by Norman Nicholson depicting Mary's gentle nurturing of her child. There is a beautiful simplicity in Chilcott's setting, which features sumptuous harmonies, lyrical melodies, and an optional part for flute that weaves in and out of the texture.
The flute part is printed in the vocal score.
