about

Taken from 'The Cherry Tree Carol', a traditional English ballad, 'Joseph and the Angel' forms the middle section of a tripartite piece. It describes Joseph on a journey in which he hears an angel sing of the baby that is about to be born. It is lovingly referred to in Laurie Lee's 'Cider with Rosie'. Christmas Cheer is another lovely Playford tune.
