Christmas elegance! This gently expressive new setting of Gustav Holst's classic Christmas carol features an exquisite keyboard theme that paints the cold winter scene at the manger. Unison and two-part vocals highlight the opening verses. Full acapella choral writing (opt. accopmaninent) brings a chilling air to the opening of the third verse, with the keyboard theme returning for a breathtaking close. Highly recommended for school holiday concerts and Christmas worship, especially a service of Lessons and Carols.
