The composer has written a tender Christmas lullaby to partner with Away in a Manger, and the result is this endearing anthem. Perfect for early- to mid-elementary choirs or choirs with a wide spread in ages. The melody is a refreshing take on the Isaiah text, complementing the cradle hymn as a graceful partner. A memorable addition to any Christmas celebration.
