From Heaven High – Four Carols from the British Isles
Arranged for flute and keyboard by William Averitt
A collection of four Christmas carols from the British Isles, arranged for flute and keyboard. The first, From Heaven High, is a Scottish carol, featuring quietly flowing motion and modal-tinged harmonies. The second movement, To Drive the Cold Winter Away, is a spirited dance arranged from a tune found in the 1650 English collection titled The Dancing Master. This movement is followed by the lovely, familiar English carol, Forest Green, to which the words of “O Little Town of Bethlehem” are sometimes sung. The robust final movement, Awake! Awake! Ye Drowsy Souls, is a traditional English carol arranged as a vigorous dance.
