Ther Is No Rose Of Swych Virtu [Dec. 25th, 2017|10:20 am]
Tony Grist


Ther is no rose of swych virtu
As is the rose that bar Jhesu.
Alleluia.

For in this rose conteyned was
Heven and erthe in lytle space.
Res miranda.

When I used to sing in choirs, we always sang Lo How a Rose this time of year. Your post reminded me of that, and I thank you.

I don't think I know that one.

I was looking for settings of "There is no Rose" and there's one by Britten, one by Joubert and another by Sting.

Here's a version of Lo, how a rose e'er bloooming by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir:

It took some determined sampling, but I found a version of "There is no rose" that is the real deal and not some modern thing.

Could be.

It came out pinker in the picture than it actually is.

Happy Yule

I love that carol. That's a beautiful rose, too.

There are several settings of the carol- all modern. One of them is by Sting (of all people).
