CHRISTMAS 2017 ” AN IRISH CHRISTMAS CAROL ” in CHRIST CHURCH CATHEDRAL

AN IRISH CHRISTMAS CAROL is just that : This fine, arching melody from 17th. c. “Baroque” Ireland with its

sarabande rhythm suggests an instrumental

piece of the time( for harp or pipes) . It perfectly matches the lovely Christmas text in Irish by Archbishop Aodh

Mac Aingil ( died 1626 ) .

My English

translation grasps the quasi- folklike quality of the original.
