All this time was commissioned by Harrow School, for their 2012 Carol Service. There are two chapel choirs at Harrow; one of four parts, and the other, consisting of tenor and baritone voices, of two parts. For the Carol Service the two part choir sings from the Gallery, which also houses the organ, while the four part choir sings from the choir stalls at the east end of the Chapel. This carol is therefore written with these rather unusual arrangements in mind. In particular, the organ part makes a commentary on the text, as well as supporting the choirs. The tessitura of all parts is governed by the youthfulness of the voices of the School Choirs. The first performances of the carol took place in Harrow School Chapel on 4th and 5th of December 2012.
