Joseph's Carol
Op.77 no. 3

Programme note

Joseph’s Carol (2003) is the Bethlehem story as related by Joseph to his mates in the pub shortly after the birth of Jesus. I think of him as a Yorkshireman, and have written his part accordingly; but he could hail from any place that relishes blunt speaking and dry wit – and performers should feel free to adapt the dialect of the words accordingly.
