Medieval English Carols - Score and Parts by Anon. For SAT/SAA/ATB recorders. Recorder Trios. Christmas Music. Level 3 - Moderate. Score and Parts. Published by Loux Music Co (MM.LMP0144).
It is theorized that throughout the early Middle Ages there was an abundance of popular carols originating from the lower classes of society centering around religious processions and holy days. Few of these popular carols were commited to writing and then only when a scribe was available. They are considered comfort food of the middle ages and early Renaissance. The ultimate test of a well crafted carol is its endurance and popularity, and these carols have met that test. Enjoy! Score and parts. Contents: 1.
