Rex Pacificus

Sincere thanks to Matthew Curtis ( for this recording. For song description and sheet music, see below.

Description: When I first sang the Christmas carol “Nowell, sing we, both all and some” in the 1990s, I fell in love with the Middle English and Latin lyrics. One day, 25 years later, I got inspired to create my own rollicking setting of this poetic gem and gave it the title, “Rex Pacificus (an ancient song for peace).” Dedicated to my dear cousins Gigi and Raven.
