News of Great Joy

Primarily based around the Sussex Carol, this Christmas work focuses on the celebration of Christ’s birth. The energy and excitement is prevalent in sections 1 and 3, with imagination and imagery of all the Christmas enchantment from both young and old. Away in a Manger is used in the middle section to create this simple yet introspective moment to centre in on the meaning of Christmas. The finale builds to a glorious proclamation to the words “Glory to God and peace to all, Now and forevermore. Amen.”
