On this day in 2010, The King of Blis was published by Oxford University Press.
This lively and uplifting carol sets a joyful fifteenth-century Christmas text by James Ryman. The music is rhythmic and powerful, with moments of rich and vibrant harmony offset by the strong, fanfare-like Latin refrain. The King of Blis is guaranteed to prove a popular choice with choirs and audiences.
A recording of the work can be found on the A Song in Season album.
