Balulalowfor two-part chorus & piano
Text: English (James, John and Robert Wedderburn)
Duration: 2'00''
Difficulty: 2/5
Use: Christmas

Balulalow is a simple but effective carol, starting with a unison, lilting melody which breaks into two parts for the second verse. This carol, for many years out-of-print, is here restored to the choral repertoire as part of the Boosey & Hawkes Choral Treasury.

The Boosey & Hawkes Choral Treasury
Drawing upon a rich archive, the Boosey & Hawkes Choral Treasury presents a wealth of choral opportunities for choirs of all types and abilities wishing to explore new choral territories. A perfect resource for accessible and inspiring choral masterworks of the twentieth century and beyond, this series restores many difficult to obtain sacred and secular classics to the repertoire.

O my deir heart, young Jesus sweet,
Prepare Thy cradle in my spreit;
And I sall rock Thee in my heart,
And never more from Thee depart.

But I sall praise Thee ever moir
With songes sweet unto Thy gloir;
The knees of my heart sall I bow,
And sing that richt Balulalow!
