Halsway Carol – Sheet Music

View Craig McLeish's Full Store

This Secular Winter Carol is a wonderful tune and a breath of fresh air in the current climate of naff pop songs with sleigh bells!  The composer is internationally renowned Hurdy Gurdy maestro Nigel Eaton, so of course the tune is designed to work over a drone of a fifth (D and A).  I have incorporated this into the parts during the verses.   The piano introduction/link is simply the chorus tune also played over a drone but you can design the arrangement anyway you like.  Guitars and other folk instruments would work well too.

  • Halsway Carol – Sheet Music

    I have used this with both my community choirs this year and they have really enjoyed learning it. It's something new and each group has brought their own personality to it. One of them had a flautist playing the instrumental intro/link and the other has used a cornet player for those parts. Lovely, rich harmonies – particularly in the chorus, but straightforward enough to be tackled by most choirs I think. Very rewarding to learn.

  • Halsway Carol – Sheet Music

    Beautiful secular carol, which the whole choir loves to sing. It's a straightforward arrangement to sing and the simplicity adds to its beauty. Definitely one to add to your Winter/Christmas repertoire if it's not already in there.
