Hydom, Tiddlydom

Regular price $2.20

Tax included.

The word “hydom” mimics the drone of bagpipes. The word “tiddlydom” represents the rhythm of the drum. This traditional Czech carol onomatopoetically recreates the sounds of these festive instruments with a cappella charm and brilliance. The English text recounts shepherds, angels, Mary, Joseph, and the little child. In the middle, a contrasting legato section lets the beauty of the voices shine before returning to playful choral textures. Simple parts for hand drum and tambourine are included.
