The Lamb
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Lamb, a short carol to the famous poem by William Blake, was composed in a rush of inspiration and sent immediately to the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, for inclusion in the annual service of Nine Lessons and Carols, as well as to Martin Neary, the director at the time of the Choir of Winchester Cathedral, who gave the first performance on 22 December 1982. The music is built on a simple melodic idea and its inversion; the simple but ambiguous chord (in ascending order, the notes A, C, G, B), symbolizing for the composer the simultaneity of joy and sorrow, would appear again and again in his later music.
