Written in Brighton, October 2015
The Wexford Carol (also known as the Enniscorthy Carol) is a traditional religious Irish carol which some suggest may be one of the oldest in the European canon. This instrumental arrangement was made for the East London Community Band, with whom I was paired for the 2015 Adopt A Composer Scheme, for their 2015 Christmas Concert programme.
