Away in a Manger arranged by Joel Raney. For SATB choir with optional piano, 4-hands. Hymntune, Christmas, Sacred. Octavo. 8 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.C5283).
In the same vein as Joel Raney's 2003, top-selling setting of "Gentle Mary Laid Her Child," here is a Christmas lullaby with optional four-hand piano accompaniment. The two tunes, CRADLE SONGS and AWAY IN A MANGER, are woven together with lush harmonies that grow to a grand point of intensity and then end in quiet, earnest prayer. The Piano 4-Hand Part and accompaniment CD are available separately.
