DX001 Carols for Two - Traditional


1. The Holly And The Ivy
2. Gaudete
3. In Dulci Jubilo
4. Patapan

Four traditional carols, arranged for two oboes. First, a meandering setting of The Holly and the Ivy where the tune weaves between the two players. This is followed by a robust version of the medieval Gaudete Christus Natus, which becomes more ornate towards the end. In Dulci Jubilo is lyrical with a descant for the accompaniment in the second verse and in Patapan the accompanying part mimics the drum rhythm throughout.
