Perfect for that reflective, quiet moment on your December concert, Lightfoot has created a haunting minor melody to showcase Katherine Parker's well-known "winds through the olvie trees" text which seamlessly leads us into strains of the familiar, Silent Night. Later in the piece, Parker's last two verses meld perfectly with the beloved carol melody and culminate in an ending of quiet splendor. An exquisite example of beauty in simplicity, this work would be equally effective in both school and church settings.
Composer: Mary Lynn Lightfoot
