Other Info: A Boy Was Born is a carol that was written for a service of Jazz Carols at St Martin in the Fields, London. The text is a 16th Century Latin Hymn, translated by Elizabeth Poston. Full of jazz inflections, this restrained and reflective piece will be a valuable addition to the Christmas choral repertoire.
Will Todd writes:
"This carol was written for Andrew Earis and the Choir of St Martin in the Fields and first performed as part of ‘Jazz Carols from St Martin in the Fields’ on 22 December 2012. It can be played using the supplied piano part or embellished using the chord symbols above. Double bass may also be used in addition to piano, again following the supplied chord symbols"
