Following the success of a previous shared carol last year the BBC have commissioned Women in Music UK member and leading world renowned composer Cheryl Frances Hoad to write a four-part a capella carol (initially noted for the readers of BBC Music Magazine - and we are spreading the word further) to sing in carol services and concerts around the world this Christmas.
And here is an interview with Cheryl: http://www.classical-music.com/article/cheryl-frances-hoad
Quoting from the article: "We do hope that those of you who sing in choirs will include 'Good day, Sir Christemas!' in your carol service or concert. If you have already received your magazine, please feel free to photocopy the music for your choir and share it widely ....
We’d love to hear or watch your performance, so do record it on an audio or video recorder. You can share the file with us via email ([email protected]) or, if the file is too large, visit www.wetransfer.com and send the file to the email given from there.
If you upload a YouTube video, do tweet us the link @MusicMagazine."
There is a link to a PDF for the score and there are some performance directions from Cheryl herself as you will see
Happy singing, and Merry Christmas!
