Boosey & Hawkes

“Balulalow” is a simple but effective carol, starting with a unison, lilting melody which breaks into two parts for the second verse. This carol, for many years out-of-print, is here restored to the choral repertoire as part of the Boosey & Hawkes Choral Treasury.

Drawing upon a rich archive, the Boosey & Hawkes Choral Treasury presents a wealth of choral opportunities for choirs of all types and abilities wishing to explore new choral territories. A perfect resource for accessible and inspiring choral masterworks of the twentieth century and beyond, this series restores many difficult to obtain sacred and secular classics to the repertoire.


O my deir heart, young Jesus sweet,

O my deir heart, young Jesus sweet,

And I sall rock Thee in my heart,

And never more from Thee depart.

But I sall praise Thee ever moir

With songes sweet unto Thy gloir;

The knees of my heart sall I bow,

And sing that richt Balulalow!
