On this day in 1974, Jesus Child was published by Oxford University Press. Caribbean music became widely popular in Britain from the 1950s, and this carol shows its influence. Jesus Child is also available in Carols for Choirs 3 and 100 Carols for Choirs. Orchestral scores are available for hire/rent at OUP and are also available on sale.
This piece is featured on the CD: The John Rutter Christmas Album and is available from our web shop.
