About this title:

Synopsis: The story of the birth of Jesus is a remarkable one on many levels---whether we see it as an account of the divine made human or simply as a tale of human endeavor. These carols celebrate a child's birth in exceptional circumstances, and what that child was to become: a man who loved his fellow humans and who lived by a humble, selfless creed, championing the marginalized in a society in which life was fraught with political tensions. These carols are for everybody: for the believer and non-believer, for people of various faiths, and simply for the curious.

Instrumentation: 2 flutes, 2 treble recorders, oboe, clarinet (B-flat), bass clarinet, percussion, harp, piano, and strings.

About the Author: Carol Ann Duffy is the author or editor of several volumes of poetry, including "The World's Wife", "Rapture", and also books for children. She has received, among other honors, the Forward Prize, the Whitbread Poetry Award, the Lannan Award, and the E. M. Forster Prize for her work. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, Duffy lives in Manchester, England, and is currently Professor of Contemporary Poetry at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Book Description Faber Music Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Manchester Carols is an inspired collaboration between composer Sasha Johnson Manning and Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy. A collection of 12 carols, linked with a gentle, entertaining narration, which reshape and modernise the Christmas story. Its creators wanted to write something that is relevant to and reflects modern society, and which acknowledges the fact that even though someone might not subscribe to the religion behind the Nativity story, they can still appreciate it as an inspiring, magical tale. The carols are for everyone, believers or not.Duffy uses the Christmas story as a metaphor for human experience, giving us up-close and personal insights into the central characters of the nativity - Mary, Joseph, a newborn baby, and a 'golden youth' (aka the Angel Gabriel).As Duffy herself says: 'I think the story is wonderful. There's a lot we can take from it on a human level even if we don't take the divine element.' There are hints, too, of the darker, grittier side of the Nativity story - refugees, poverty, giving birth on the road; and, looking further forward, there are hints of Jesus' fate on the cross. These carols were written in Manchester in 2007 and first performed by children from several Manchester schools at The Royal Northern College of Music (and again in 2008). All of us who worked on them - librettist, composer, artist, conductor, teachers, musicians and singers - live and work in that great city. And so these are, and will forever be, The Manchester Carols". Seller Inventory # FBM9780571521210
