Introduction
Maw’s arrangement of the Corpus Christi Carol (1964) for sopranos with descant and piano, was commissioned for The Cambridge Hymnal; the words and melody were collected by Vaughan Williams in Derbyshire. In this performance a wider use of the choral forces of Schola Cantorum of Oxford are employed. Particularly effective is the rocking, gently syncopated and dissonant accompaniment that underlies the second and fourth verses.
