The Wexford Carol - Score

by Anne McGinty

The Wexford Carol - Score

The Wexford Carol dates back to the 12th century and is one of the oldest Irish carols, originating in the area of County Wexford, Ireland.  It is a beautiful song that should definitely not be limited to Christmas concerts.  Much like the English carol "What Child is This?" which is based on Greensleeves, The Wexford Carol can be played throughout the year by retitling it with the opening words, "Good People All."

This arrangement of The Wexford Carol has everything from a simple melody with accompaniment to complex, contrapuntal scoring.  The lush harmonies and voicings add to the complexities of this beautiful piece.  The Wexford Carol will stimulate your students' intellect, creativity and musicality.
