From the publisher’s website:

‘Despite being firmly established as a joyful and expectant time of year, I’ve always found Christmas to be a period of great uncertainty. The materialistic expectations of society seem to far outweigh those of waiting for the birth of Jesus, as we seek, year on year to find the true meaning of Christmas. This poem reminds us that the ‘real’ Christmas is out there somewhere, albeit now decked with a sparkly sprinkling of nostalgic tradition; these days we just have to look much harder to find it.’


‘David Barton’s ‘A Winter Tale’ is an interesting and enjoyable piece to sing, with opportunities for word painting and dynamic range. It is very accessible for an audience and could be used as part of a recital or as a stand-alone piece.’
