for SATB and organ or chamber orchestra This is a rich and expressive setting of William Chatterton Dix's famous words. Opening with an elegant melody line for sopranos or tenors, it flowers into full SATB choral textures, both accompanied and a cappella. Containing a delicate soprano solo, lush choral writing, and a tender recurring melody, What child is this? will make an enchanting feature in any Christmas service or concert. An accompaniment for chamber orchestra (fl, cl, str) is available on hire/rental.
Thomas Hewitt Jones (b.1984)
