Carol of the Magi

Accompanied; Instrumental; SATB

This is a tuneful Epiphany carol, setting a text by the composer. Underpinned by a beautiful cello solo, the vocal lines are rich and flowing, and the organ supports the choir with warm harmonies. The carol was written at the invitation of Red Balloon, a Cambridge-based UK-wide organization dedicated to the recovery of bullied children.

The cello part is published separately and an accompaniment for strings is available to hire at the OUP link below.
