Wild Wood Carol
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Wild Wood Carol is an extract from Rutter’s musical version of Kenneth Grahame’s timeless children’s classic The Wind in the Willows, written in 1981 for The King’s Singers. The carol forms an interlude covering the winter journey of Mole and Rat to Badger’s house. Although the text of the ‘musical fable’ as a whole was the work of the late David Grant, a friend of the composer from Clare College days, the words for this one number are by Rutter himself.
