This recording marries Daquin's Twelve Noels (well-known as organ pieces) to the original late mediæval verses from which they derived.
Simon Wright realised the score from the keyboard original and matched it to the original carol melodies before orchestrating it with remarkable imagination. Mark Darlow researched and put together the text during a period of study leave in Paris. Through a process of consultation the verses were sifted, and a pastoral progression of solos and choruses has emerged, with the shepherds who 'tended their flocks by night' as the main characters.
