On the sixth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
All I really wanted was a yellow ball
In a gravel puddle**
And a partridge in a pear tree.
**The interpolated text harkens back to my last choral setting, Dusk, with text by Chris Wallace-Crabbe (From I’m Deadly Serious (Oxford; Melbourne: Oxford University
Press, 1988).
