Advent Calendar 13: I Saw a Maiden

I love this piece for its gorgeous alto line and for the lovely lyrics – mickle melody is such an awesome phrase. I taught it to my work choir years ago and after an initial round of complaining that it was Too Hard and Too Weird, it quickly became a favourite, and the altos loved it so much that I was hard put to get them to stop bellowing out the ‘lullays’.

But they did sing it very well.

I’m feeling very proud of my work choir this weekend for reasons that must remain secret for now, but I’m dedicating this piece to them.
