What sweeter music

author of text

This, an Edward Heath commission, typifies Bennett’s care and skill in seeking out good and sometimes little-known texts—characteristic also of Vaughan Williams and Britten. Herrick’s poem is extracted from A Caroll for New Yeares Day, a masque for Charles I with music (now lost) by William Lawes, and it perfectly sums up what carols are about.
