Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Yuletide Pastoral was composed in response to a commission from Gramophone magazine for its Christmas number in 1997. This little piece pays a general homage to the style of a certain English composer, contains material from a very famous Christmas-inspired composition, and weaves in themes from five well-known Christmas carols.
