Once in Royal David's City - Trinity Choir
According to tradition, since 1919 every service of nine lessons and carols has begun with Once in Royal David's City (words by Cecil Frances Alexander and set to music by Henry Gauntlet). As we were limited in what Christmas celebrations we could pursue, we felt it fitting that we used our time to honour this tradition, given that many of our local churches wouldn't be able to hold their carol services. The solo here is sung by George S, our head chorister, who up until recently refused to sing a solo in front of anybody. I am sure you will agree, we are blessed to have voices like this to make up our school choir and we are grateful that George has found the confidence to allow us to showcase him! The choir recorded in groups and particularly enjoyed singing the last verse with the soaring descant. We are so privileged to have a choir of such skill and talent.
Lully, Lulla, Lullay - Pure Voices
The roots of this carol date back to the 14th Century, and the oldest known written melody is dated to 1591 - the first year of Queen Elizabeth Is reign. We used a modern setting (2008) of the lyrics by Phillip Stopford, originally written for full adult choir but adapted to enable us to sing in 4 parts! The carol tells the story of the 'massacre of the innocents' and represents the voices of the mothers of the children that were ordered to be killed by King Herod when he heard the Messiah had been born in Bethlehem. The melody is both haunting and beautiful. It was definitely a challenge for Pure Voices, but they worked incredibly hard and all put the time in to learning their separate parts. We could not be prouder of them.
