Hendrix College, Arkansas, established its Candlelight Carol services, modelled on the Christmas Eve services from Kings College Chapel, in 1964. Janet’s entry Behold, I Come, was selected from over 65 submissions for the 2017 Candlelight Carol Competition and will be premiered on 30 November at the start of a regional tour by the choir.
This concert takes its title from the new song cycle commissioned by the daughters of Barbara Tealby in memory of their mother and forms a companion piece to Janet’s much-loved John Clare cycle “Time Becomes A Song” which commemorates Barbara’s husband Alfred. The texts include “Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep”, “The Lake Isle of Innisfree” by Yeats and the children’s nursery rhyme “Little Mousey Brown”.
