This affecting carol was composed in memory of Alan Greaves, the organist from Sheffield who was murdered on his way to Midnight Mass in 2012. The text, The Bethlehem Star by Gerard Manley Hopkins, is particularly suited to the Midnight Mass service, and Chilcott's setting is both peaceful and poignant, featuring changing metres and effective imitation in the upper voice parts.
