How Quietly

SATB choir with optional unison choir or vocal soloist
Composed by Joel Raney. Hymntune, Children, Christmas, Sacred. Octavo. 8 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.C5436).

Item Number: HP.C5436

Text by Joel Raney. Scriptural Reference: Luke 2:11-12, 2 Corinthians 9:15.

Written for adult choir with optional children's choir or soloist, this pairing of an original composition with a Christmas classic affords a unique way to present "Away in a Manger" during the holiday season. The simple part for the children's voices fits perfectly with Raney's gentle, original lullaby. The flowing piano accompaniment provides a lush underpinning for this re-telling of the night Christ was born. This setting originally appeared in Joel Raney's popular Christmas musical, Celebrate the Season. In 2007 the SATB setting was our top-selling anthem. An SAB voicing is also available. The orchestration contains a Conductor's Score and parts for: Synth, Percussion, Bass, Harp, Flute, Oboe, Trumpet, French Horn, Violin, Cello and Handbells.

    This setting was received enthusistically by our SATB choir and young soloist as well as the audience. Combining the lilting lullaby with Away in manger gives a quietly beautiful and reverent performance. It was easy to learn and sing.
