These Carol-Preludes were written in 2008, but the idea was in the composer’s mind for many years before this. Essentially, they revive the old style of the Chorale- Prelude, but using carol tunes instead of hymns or chorales. They are derived from German, French and English melodies some of the German tunes were found in my mother’s old school songbook from her schooldays in Germany after the First World War.
