You will not find a more hauntingly beautiful piece for your December concerts than this one. The text ("In December we remember our traditions new and old.") focuses on the candle, used as a symbol for ALL December holidays. And the melody, underscored with rich harmonies, is as pensive and thoughtful as the holiday season should be. Your singers and audiences will be touched by its power and simplicity. Beautiful but optional clarinet parts are included in the publication.
