A Boy Was Born for double choir and organ, this carol has three main influences:Benjamin Britten's setting (Carols for Choirs);John Tavener andOlivier Messiaen.

Performance Note:
The phrasing for the voices is obvious and must be sung absolutely legato; the section starting bar 31 (Choir I) needs to be sung in one breath. The organ part might look simple, however, judicious use of the pedal department and swell boxes can certainly help to create a "mysterious atmosphere". All fermatas should be long and the following rests very generous, remember, the other "performer" is the building, however, resonant.
