We are delighted to celebrate the centenary of William Lloyd Webber with this eight-book collection.
Showcasing him in the light of a composer who was true to himself and who fully embraced his signature style, this is music that is romantic, melodious and – above all – heartfelt.
This is also music that goes beyond the accepted conventions of his day – music whose time has come!
This tuneful, straightforward and thoroughly enjoyable cantata has parts for baritone solo, chorus and organ, with three well-known hymns for the congregation. The text is taken from Scripture and other sources including Wesley, Luther and Heber. Born a King will take 20-25 minutes to perform, making it suitable for use in a service or as part of a longer Christmas concert. It will cause no learning headaches for a parish choir and will give much pleasure.
- an appreciation of William Lloyd Webber's cantata 'Born a King', published by Kevin Mayhew Ltd Review by Algernon
Kevin Mayhew Ltd have rescued a lot of Lloyd Webber 'Pater' from possible oblivion, and so have given performers and audiences the chance to re-evaluate a composer with a very distinctive voice whose music was perhaps not fully appreciated in his own lifetime. They have done the memory of WLW proud, and they have done English music a great service. (Posted on 28/06/2010)
Blessed is he that cometh
Come, thou long expected Jesus
Hark the glad sound
Of the Father's love begotten
My heart for very joy doth leap
Once in royal Devid's city
O come, let us worship home
Behold, there came wise men
Brightest and best of the sons of the morning
As with gladness men of old
