"The Coventry Carol" is named after the city of Coventry. It was a carol performed in the play The Pageant of The Shearman and Tailors, written in the 15th Century as one of the Coventry Cycle Mystery Plays. For your string ensemble, Jerry Brubaker has created this marvelous "fantasy variations" on this very beautiful and well known carol. We begin with a renaissance style chorale setting followed by a fugue. There is a lively and exciting dance section leading to a dramatic and majestic conclusion. This is truly a festive holiday package magnificently tied up with bows!
