2016 Choral Contest Entry
The words for Noël nouvelet first appeared around the time of Columbus’ 1492voyage to the Americas. The word “nouvelet” doesn’t exist any more, but it isrelated to the modern French word “nouvel” meaning “new”. So the titleproclaims a new Christmas song in honour of the newborn King. This rhythmicallybuoyant a cappella arrangement for malechoir captures the exuberance of the Christmas spirit, proclaiming the good newsof the birth of the newborn King. An introductory Noel section is skilfully used as interlude and modulatory material,with the contrasting textures and harmonic colours bringing a new flavour tothis traditional 15th century seasonal favourite. It may be sung in eitherthe original French or English. .
