Drive the cold winter away

My arrangement and adaptation of a traditional carol for SATB singers. The audio file is software generated using choral ahs for vocals.

This score is designed for home or amateur use, and since the melody is simple, the core is in songbook style, with the melody given once and all three verses under it. The lyrics are in the score and are also given at the end of the score.

Version of 26 August 2019.

As always, I'll be glad to receive comments on this composition, especially from performers, even if a long time has passed since it was posted.


Please note that while this composition is based on a traditional song in the public domain, this adaptation of it is an original creative work under copyright.
