Gorgeous word painting sets the mood for the first Christmas night: underneath starry skies, shepherds are watching their flocks by night, angels are singing as they are taking flight, and all are invited to greet the new baby in a stable in Bethlehem. Schram has tenderly tucked in the middle the traditional Welsh carol, All Through the Night, giving the listener a taste of the familiar within this stunning original. A fluid, supportive piano accompaniment graces this memorable piece that is equally suitable for school or church settings.
