This anthology of eleven carols celebrates the festive music of John Gardner (1917-2011). It contains some of his most well-known settings alongside new repertoire, including a previously unpublished Epiphany carol, 'Entry of the Three Kings'. From the reflective 'A Christmas Hymn' to his joyful setting of 'The holly and the ivy', John Gardner Carols presents a variety of styles and moods that will delight choirs and audiences alike. A number of pieces give alternative performance instructions to allow upper-voice choirs to enjoy this superb collection.
A number of the carols are included on the EM Records CD 'John Gardner: Cantata for Christmas, Organ Concerto, Christmas Carols' (EMR CD009) with the City of London Choir, conducted by Hilary Davan Wetton and Chris Gardner.
