PUBLISHER’S NOTE

In August 1961, Oxford University Press published a practical, inexpensive new

collection of carols and Christmas hymns in choral arrangements, with accessible

orchestrations for many of the items available on hire. This book, Carols for Choirs,

with its green livery and design of an angel on the cover, soon became one of the

best-selling carol anthologies of all time. The editors, Reginald Jacques and David

Willcocks, ensured that the contents would serve concerts and services equally well,

and that familiar repertoire was complemented with items especially written for the

collection (four newly composed items were included). One of the book’s features

was the concept of uniting under one cover all the material that a choir would need

for their event, and another was the inclusion of an Order of Service for the benefit

of choirs who modelled their services on the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at

King’s College, Cambridge.

for online perusal only

Such was the book’s success that further volumes followed, with John Rutter

joining David Willcocks as fellow series editor (Jacques died in 1969). Carols for

Choirs 2 (1970) again covered a mix of traditional and new, and also included

material for an Advent service. Carols for Choirs 3 (1978) included simpler

arrangements, and some unadorned medieval and Baroque items, and Carols

for Choirs 4 (1980) met the demand for an upper-voice collection. The larger

compilation 100 Carols for Choirs (1987) contains items from the first three books,

with twenty-six new inclusions. Collectively, the books have enhanced, and

in many cases shaped and defined, the Christmas musical experience of many

thousands of singers, musicians, and listeners for fifty years: the Carols for Choirs

series is used by cathedrals and town-square carol-singers, schools and parish

churches, and by choral societies and folk simply wishing to enjoy carols in their

homes. The publication of Carols for Choirs 5, under the editorship of Bob Chilcott

and David Blackwell, ensures that the legacy of this well-loved series will be

continued for many years to come.

PREFACE

It is a great pleasure to have the opportunity to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the

first collection in the Carols for Choirs series by introducing a fifth volume of carols

and arrangements. It is probably fair to say that over the past fifty years the Carols

for Choirs series has been one of the most important Christmas resources for choir

singers and conductors worldwide. It has also been an inspiration to composers and

arrangers, giving them the confidence to write new carols, as well as helping singers,

congregations, and audiences to embrace the new alongside the more traditional.

Our aim with this publication is to bring to the fore as many new carols and

arrangements as we can. Within this volume are forty new carols representing the

work of thirty composers and arrangers, not only from the United Kingdom but

also from the United States, Canada, Finland, and Switzerland. The remaining ten

carols are existing favourites that have been published by Oxford University Press

in recent years. We have aimed to include carols and hymns that will find a place

not only in a traditional carol service but also within the repertoire of the carol

concert, as reflected in the number of orchestral accompaniments that have been

made available.

for online perusal only

Thanks are due to all the composers who have contributed to this publication, to

Robyn Elton for her careful editing, and to Flora Death for all her work on the

scores and parts for the carol orchestrations. But perhaps the greatest thanks should

go to Reginald Jacques, Sir David Willcocks, and John Rutter, whose inspirational

work has enabled the Carols for Choirs series to take flight, and given us the energy

to carry it forward with confidence.

original 5-verse Latin hymn-version. Verses 4 and 5 may be included using the repeats; these complete the sequence of 7 verses,

though not in the original order of the antiphons. Verse 1 was originally the last antiphon, and may be repeated at the end.

29. Old Christmas Returned (or Hospitality Revived)

Being a Looking-glass for rich Misers, wherein they may see (if they be not blind) how much they are to blame for their penurious

house-keeping, and likewise an encouragement to those noble-minded gentry, who lay out a great part of their estates in hospitality,

relieving such persons as have need thereof: ‘Who feasts the poor, a true reward shall find, Or helps the old, the feeble, lame, and blind.’*

O come, all ye faithful 133

3. See how the shepherds,

Summoned to his cradle,

Leaving their flocks, draw nigh with lowly fear;

We too will thither

Bend our joyful footsteps:

O come, etc.

4. Lo! star-led chieftains,

Magi, Christ adoring,

Offer him incense, gold, and myrrh;

We to the Christ Child

Bring our hearts’ oblations:

O come, etc.

5. Child, for us sinners

Poorandinthemanger,

Fain we embrace thee, with awe and love;

Who would not love thee,

Loving us so dearly?

O come, etc.
