About

The last carol of the cycle, I Saw Three Ships was written for Cambridge Music School in the summer of 1962. Now I Joseph was walking was written in the early 70s while I was teaching at Linwood High School and originally had a percussion accompaniment. The other two were written in 1977 to complete the cycle with texts by my wife Brigitte in Christchurch, and were first performed in 1980 by the Auckland Dorian Choir under the baton of Peter Godfrey.

Now nearly 30 years later I have made some minor changes
