Faber Edition: Choral Signature Series
SATB, a cappella
Christ is Born of Maiden Fair is a rhythmic yet flowing Christmas choral work that will appeal to a wide range of choirs. David Matthews skillfully manipulates the modal sound-world to create music that hints at the medieval while maintaining an essentially contemporary sound.
The Faber Choral Signature Series introduces a wealth of new or recently written choral music to choirs in search of fresh repertoire. The series draws in a rich diversity of contemporary composers and includes both lighter and more challenging contemporary works, offering a thrilling array of varied styles.
