Various Arrangers : A Cappella Carols from Around The World

"The Stone House Carol" is based on the old French Carol, "Noel Nouvelet" and has a beautiful melody and words. By joining this with the English Language Easter Carol version, it was possible to write a piece meditating on the Greatest Love (and Sacrifice) of all. After a short mysterioso introduction the main theme is stated three times, at first tentatively, then triumphantly. The final verse returns to the sense of awe and mystery of the introduction, ending with a musical question mark that is perhaps testing our response to the words being uttered. The two popular Swedish Christmas Carols, "Nu Ar Detv Jul Igen" and "Na Juldagsmorgon Glimmar", capture complementary aspects of the Christmas spirit. Nu Ar Detv Jul Igen is in the style of the Hambo, one of the most popular of Swedish folk dances. At Christmas time, the Hambo is danced around the Yule tree by children gaily singing these playful verses. Nar Juldagsmorgon Glimmar is a more expressive carol, filled with the magic of Jesus' birth in the humble manger. Throughout the arrangement, the dance carol should be sung lightly and accented, with a dancing buoyancy. Nar Juldagsmorgon Glimmar should be sung legato with expressive lines and should never be covered by the quicker carol. "Joulupuu on Rakennetu" is a Finnish carol and two Norman Lubuff arrangements makes this a great collection.
