Coventry Carol

Sheet music for harp and voice; part of the Christmas Carols 8-piece set.

 

 

"Lullay, thou little tiny child. Bye bye, Lully, Lullay."

 

This medieval English carol is a lullaby to the children of Bethlehem who were slaughtered by King Herod in his attempt to kill the newborn King. It was traditionally sung on the Feast of the Holy Innocents, December 28, but now is sung throughout the Christmas season. The song is presented here in an arrangement for the lever harp and voice which provides a beautiful counterpoint to the simplicity of the melody. The sheet music is 4 pages, 8 " x 11", printed in black on ivory paper, and includes words (4 verses), melody for voice, chord symbols, arrangement for the harp, and a lovely illustration by Celtic artist Elly Fithian. $3.00.
