FIRST MERCY Paperback
Part of the BOOSEY HAWKES CHORAL TREASURY series
Carol. A simple carol with mostly homophonic textures and some of Warlocks characteristic harmonic twists, The First Mercy 1926 was originally a solo song and an early collaboration between Peter Warlock and Bruce Blunt, with whom he would soon after write perhaps his best-known choral work, Bethlehem Down.
Warlock arranged the carol for upper voices SSA piano in 1927 also available on sale but it was not until 1964 that the carol was arranged by Geoffry Russell-Smith for mixed voices no divisi and piano.
That arrangement is here restored to print in a newly-prepared edition.
