This arrangement was composed for the 2013 Christmas Carol Service at St Matthew’s, Bethnal Green, London. If you don’t have anyone to sing the descant you can simply play the organ part as a last verse arrangement. If you perform this arrangement, please do let me know. I love to hear about performances of my music, wherever they are in the world. This score has been downloaded over 200 times, so I take it that other people are performing it. I hope you have as much fun with it as we did in Bethnal Green!
