Adagio on a Sussex Carol


Adagio on a Sussex Carol


Zaninelli, Luigi

Item Code:
C. Alan Publications

Based on the old English Sussex Mummers Carol, Zaninelli artfully combines original and traditional melodic elements to produce an exciting modern version of this memorable carol.

Program Notes

This is actually two works in one. We first hear a slow melodic variation on the Sussex Carol. This is followed by a simple, new setting of the carol. Then both the Adagio variation and the Carol are heard simultaneously This leads to a powerful climax which culminates in a gentle quiet ending.
