O Little Town of Bethlehem

Phillips Brooks was born in Boston, USA and spent his life there as a Christian Minister. His carol, “O Little Town of Bethlehem”, was written for his Sunday School in 1868.

Michael Brand’s new setting imagines the sleeping town in a lullaby. Opening solos lead to more with choral backing followed by a four part canon and ends with a tutti soprano descent against the reiterated unison tune.
