Matthew Coleridge

Music Workshops
Corpus Christi Carol


A haunting setting of a wonderfully evocative Middle English text - an allegory in which Christ is represented by a bleeding knight.

Austere Medieval harmonies are woven with fleeting dissonances to create fluctuations of warmth and cold.

Recorded by The Queen's Six for the album Lo, How a Rose e'er Blooming
