Lirum Lirum composed by Thomas Morley (1557-1602). Arranged by David Giardiniere. For SSAB choir (a cappella) (with optional instrumental accompaniment). Christmas. Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-2261H).
Morley's Christmas madrigal is possibly the most enduring work of its genre and should be a part of every choral library. This newly expanded edition offers an updated text and optional instrumental consort to offer the best of Renaissance style and 21st-century choral singing. Careful editing has preserved Morley's original text, which is also included as a performance option.
