Great news: A Carol From Flanders is to be published by Recital Music and will soon be available for purchase. The work, for SATB choir and organ, has been written especially for the centenary of the First World War ‘Christmas Truce’ which famously took place on Christmas Day 1914. If you are starting to think about planning the winter concert programmes for your choir or choral society, this carol would be the perfect way to mark one hundred years since the outbreak of WW1. Do get in touch for more information, as we can provide audio and score samples before you buy, or visit Recital Music.
