A descant in a carol is a counter-melody (another melody) that is sung with the carol. The descant is usually higher in pitch.
Mr Hopkins has kindly allowed me to use these recordings. He recorded them in a hurry and asks that you be kind about his voice .
Listen to the descant for Hark the Herald
Listen to the descant for O Come All Ye Faithful
See the music for these descants here.
Please learn these for Tuesday.
