The Christmas Choral & Vocal Music series

Recital Music has developed a large, exciting and eclectic catalogue of Christmas music for choirs in recent years. Some works are published for the first time, others are in new editions, and we aim to provide accessible and enjoyable choral music for choirs of all ages and abilities. Enjoy!


Away in a Manger is aimed at the junior choir and is performable as a unison carol, or with the addition of an effective and evocative descant. The music is tuneful and memorable, enjoyable to learn and perform, and with a gently undulating and supportive accomapniment which is full of character and style.

This is a great new addition to the junior choir repertoire using traditional words but in a lively new setting.

Away in a Manger was awarded 2nd Prize (Category 2) in Recital Music's 2012 Christmas Carol Competition.


Derek Taverner initially trained as an organist with Dr. Harvey Grace amongst others and had a successful career as a London theatre and ballet conductor. He also worked as an orchestrator and arranger and won an Ivor Novello Award and is now retired and living in East Sussex.
