I've just re-discovered this lovely song, and I see it's on your database. I remember vaguely singing this with my pupils on Singing Together years ago. Does anyone know about Sidney Carter? When did he write this and does/did he actually live in Norwich?
Also, on Youtube, there's a choir (dressed in black and red, but un-named) singing it, and they're possibly Scottish. Can anyone identify them for me?

Senoufou,
You'll find lots of info on the creator of "Lord of the dance" (and I don't mean Michael Flatley) if you search with the spelling "Sydney Carter". Apparently a London boy through and through.

Cheers
Nigel

Ah, thanks for that Nigel. Bit sad he wasn't from Narridge!

It is nice isn't it leeneia? Somehow it chokes me up a bit. I've visited Julian's shrine in Norwich, and her statue is at the door of Norwich Cathedral, with that of St Benedict.
I really like the words, "Let the winter come and go..."
Very pretty tune.

See Mudcat threads "Julian of Norwich"and "Bells of Norridge". Book 5 of "Songs of Sydney Carter" has lyrics, piano arrangement and chords.
I have a copy of British Heritage Magazine's Notable Britons series giving a brief biography of St.Julian

Thank you cetmst. Will have a look.
The tune is now lodged in my head and I can't get it out!
