About This Work

‘Once in Royal David’s City’, set to music by H.J. Gauntlett in 1849, epitomizes Christmas and since 1919 has begun the Christmas Eve service of Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, held at the King's College Chapel (Cambridge). This setting by Ian Macpherson for Concert Band and Choir, is a real alternative to those more traditionally used and full of the dynamic and rich scoring associated with his work and makes an ideal accompaniment to congregational singing.

As with all settings of Carols and Hymns published by SafeMusic, the arrangement of the first verse is taken from the traditional harmonization. The choir parts are optional.
