Gentle Mary Laid Her Child arranged by Joel Raney. For SAB choir with optional 4-hand piano. Hymntune, Christmas, Sacred. Octavo. 8 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.C5552).
This dramatic choral setting features a flowing, Brahms-like piano accompaniment, fully realized in the optional 4-hand piano accompaniment. The frequent use of augmented phrases provides space for the lush choral sound. Creative text painting adds interest and builds toward a stirring, triumphant finish. The 4-Hand Piano Part and a Rehearsal/Performance CD are both available separately.
