Other Information:

The Leicester Cathedral Advent Carol Service features an early work by David Fisher which was last performed on the Leicester Cathedral Legacy Concert on October 12th 2013. This is the programme note from that concert:

Adam lay ybounden

Another early piece, this one written early in 1970 for a group called Octave. This was a group of eight friends based at Holy Apostles Church where Alan Warren was the vicar and later Precentor of Leicester Cathedral. The Rev. Alan Warren commissioned my first professional work which was A Christmas Suite for all the children at his church. I received the grand sum of 10 shillings [50p]. This carol, however, is not connected and is in ternary form [accompanied, a cappella and accompanied again] and composed with the Leicester Cathedral organ in mind.

It is to be performed by the senior trebles and songmen directed by Dr Chris Johns with Simon Headley on the organ.
