Philip Posted December 24, 2007 Share Posted December 24, 2007 I just wondered if anyone had done any new (or previously unrecognised) items at Carol services this year which merited a mention. I'll put forward two - Simon Preston's arrangement of 'I saw three ships' is definitely worth a look but is very tricky. Soprano and tenor solos during it. If pulled off well, sounds fantastic, he does some very unusual things with what is quite a simple melody. Does have a very tricky organ part though, with a very fast last verse. The other is a setting of 'There is no rose' by Howard Helvey, who is an American. This is unaccompanied, but very beautiful IMO, which some lovely harmonies. If you want to listen to it then its on Alfred Publishing's website at http://www.alfred.com/alfredweb/front/Prod...52&pubnum=0. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
