Text: Giles Swayne. Haunting, catchy and easy to sing, this musical Christmas-card includes the stable, manger, oxen, ass, angels, shepherds, wandering star and wise men. A rehearsal accompaniment is provided.
A setting of original words by Katrina Shepherd, this short carol beautifully captures the hushed rapture of a small parish church in a snowbound landscape, just before Christmas. Couched in a highly accessible style, it is simple for any choir to sing, and is already very popular with choirs in Britain and abroad.
