Here is a lighthearted, graceful new carol with a trick up its sleeve: It's in 7/8 meter. Once you have the knack of the uneven metrical division (easy to do, since it never varies), the music carries you joyfully through the Christmas story, with the voices supported by a nimble, dance-like organ accompaniment.

Rejoice and be merry by Timothy Parsons

performed by St Martin's Voices directed by Andrew Earis

Timothy Parsons

Timothy Parsons took up the position of Director of Music at St Edmundsbury Cathedral in April 2021. He has responsibility for all aspects of the Cathedral's music, most importantly the Cathedral Choir. Prior to this, he worked at Exeter Cathedral for five years as Assistant Director of Music, where he was the principal organist for services, concerts, recordings and broadcasts and directed the Cathedral's voluntary choir, the St Peter's Singers. 

Born to musical parents in 1992, Timothy was a chorister at Guildford Cathedral and a music scholar at Charterhouse. He went on to hold the organ scholarship at Hereford Cathedral (2010-11) and then read Music as Organ Scholar of Selwyn College Cambridge, graduating with a starred first in 2014. Whilst at Cambridge he also held the organ scholarship for King's Voices, the mixed-voice choir of King's College Chapel. He held the post-graduate organ scholarship at Winchester Cathedral from 2014 to 2016, also working for a term as Acting Assistant Director of Music. Timothy is an active soloist, having given recitals at cathedrals including St Paul's, London and Liverpool (Anglican). In 2018 he recorded a disc of organ music at Exeter for Regent Records' English Cathedral Series, which was praised for its 'vigour, optimism and supreme self confidence' (MusicWeb International) and 'virtuoso command of the organ' (Organists' Review). He is also a busy composer, mainly writing to fill a liturgical need at his places of work. His anthem The Lord is King, a setting of Psalm 93, has been recorded on CD and performed live on BBC Radio 3.
