Peter Warlock: Corpus Christi SATB/Piano+Sop/Ten Solos

Libro | Coral

Compositor: Peter Warlock
Formato: Partituras | Partitura

Corpus Christi is an anonymous Middle English Carol, first written down c.1500. It was re-worked as a carol for Soprano and Tenor Soloists with SATB chorus by Peter Walock (1894-1930) in 1919. It was dedicated to Thomas Strong, later Bishop of Oxford, who had been Dean of Christ Church College during Warlock's brief time studying there, and who is better known for encouraging William Walton's musical career. 

While he is best remembered for his scandalous lifestyle and his large-scale Capriol Suite, the Corpus Christi carol ranks alongside Bethlehem Down as one of Warlock's most sensitive and beautiful creations.
