Manger Child composed by Linda Spevacek. For SATB choir. Sacred Anthem, Christmas. Octavo. Published by Laurel Press (LO.10-2556LA).
Isaac Watts' Cradle Hymn is ably adapted to a folk-like melody. Primarily unison and two-part writing blossoms into four voices in the middle section reflecting in tender tones on the slumber of the tiny Child.
