A new addition to the Boosey & Hawkes Contemporary Choral Series, this carol by the leading Finnish composer of his generation was commissioned by King's College, Cambridge and first performed at A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols in 2010. Rautavaara's mystical style comes through in the parallel textures and shifting tonality. Christmas Carol is a challenging but entirely rewardingcontemporary carol for choirs looking for something a bit different to add to their repertoire.
