New Year

First line:
Turn your eyes to the light
author of text

This, one of the few carols celebrating the coming of the New Year, was written in 2006 at the request of the organist and choir of Sandringham Church, who wished to offer a seasonal tribute to HM The Queen in her 80th birthday year. It was first performed in Sandringham Church, in the presence of the Queen and members of the royal family, on New Year’s Eve 2006. The version with orchestra followed in 2007.
