Four Holst Carols image
IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER [5 minutes], PERSONENT HODIE [3 minutes], LULLAY MY LIKING [3 minutes], MASTERS IN THIS HALL [3½ minutes].
These four carols, written or originally arranged by Gustav Holst, have all become well-known as congregational carols. Peter Lawson has arranged them so that they are more of a choir concert item with optional orchestral accompaniment. Rather than keeping each verse and chorus the same, the carols have been "through arranged", often with key changes which also enables the melody to be passed to other voices, adding more interest to some wonderful old favourites. In Personent hodie there is a new singable English translation by Peter Lawson. The Four Holst Carols can be performed as a set or individually.
There are four different choral versions of this work available separately, all fit the orchestral accompaniment though the orchestral score shows the SATB version.
For details of the Orchestral parts see Catalogue number GMCH012 where you can also hear a computer generated performance with orchestra. No choral copies are included with the orchestral pack.
These carols can be performed without orchestra with either piano or organ accompaniment using the vocal scores listed below.
