Sweet was the Song from Ralph Allwood’s festive collection Christmas Carols, Old and New.
An old tale of innocence and love recounted by a delicate soprano voice and underpinned by rich, warming harmonies. The angelic melody develops with moments of elation and circles back with a repeat of the opening, ending on a solemn note.
