James Biery has created a setting of the WEXFORD CAROL set to Stephen Starke’s text based on the Fall in the garden as recounted in the Book of Genesis. The piece has multiple uses throughout the year, notably for Good Friday. For choirs that present a service of Lessons and Carols, this piece would be a welcome addition to the repertoire that follows the traditional first reading.
The oboe part is optional.
