Item Number: S0.70187

A rhapsodic setting of the carol - also known as "Only A Rose E'er Blooming" and "A Great And Mighty Wonder". The opening shows the cold winter landscape and the sudden warming as "The Rose" pushes its way through the snow. The rose is a climbing one and its tendrils wind around each other to support the flower which finally opens fully when the solo soprano enters with the German words.A developmental section follows, with statements of the original material interspersed with statements of the chorale melody. The music is generally uneasy, with the percussion reminding us of the slaughter of the innocents and events to come, however, the joy of the new birth triumphs with an ’angelic host’ singing the English words "A Great And Mighty Wonder" against angel fanfares on the trombones and cornets.This is a difficult piece as the balance between the choral and brass forces is critical. It would make a terrific finalefor a joint concert. Throughout, the setting is sensitive to the meanings of both the German and English words. It makes a good contrast to the constant frippery to which we are all subjected at Christmas.Performance time is 6 minutes.
