    Does anyone know of an arrangement for “There Is No Rose of Such Virtue,” by Jean Joubert?

    I should clarify;

    I’m not sure what you’re asking, Tonie. The poem dates to the fifteenth century, so why Jean Joubert? Maybe you’d get more answers if you could explain a little more about what you want.

    Oh, wait. Do you mean you want a harp arrangement of John Joubert’s setting? I’m not aware of anything except the SATB version. I was thinking of the French poet Jean Joubert, sorry.

    Gee, I really don’t know. Maybe someone else will, but that was actually much better known as a poem than a carol before Britten. I know it’s not in the older Oxford Book of Carols, but if your library has the New Oxford Book of Carols it might have made it into that.

    But if they want to add an accmpt to the Joubert version I suppose the best thing would be to figure out the chords from the unaccompanied vocal version, unless someone else here knows of a published arrangement.

    The melody Sting uses is the same as in Rutter’s “Dancing Day.” The harp accompaniment in that particular movment is just a few chords with some vocal cues, so you’d be better off with the vocal score. Still quite sparse, but at least something.

    Off to another gig…
