This simple and appealing setting og Sweet was the Song captures the renaissance character of the text whilst adding a fresh, modern twist. Suitable for choirs both professional and amateur, it would make a beautiful addition to a Christmas concert or carol service, and provide a touching moment of reflection during Midnight Mass.

Text: William Ballet‘s Lute Book in Library of Trinity College, Dublin, c.1600

"Emma Brown’s “Sweet was the Song the Virgin Sung” takes the familiar carol text and weaves it into a ¬glistening lullaby, dew-fresh. Low basses anchor a sensitive performance, but it’s the upper voices that dominate the italic texture, giving it its sheen."
