SATB div., unaccompanied

Precious Child has enjoyed many performances by such ensembles as The William Baker Festival Singers of Kansas City, Grace University Chorale of Omaha, Nebraska, Heartland Harmony of Omaha, Nebraska, The Bellevue Choral Society, and combined members of the University of Nebraska at Omaha's Concert Choir and University Chorus. Precious Child was also performed at the annual St Cecilia Cathedral concert by the University of Nebraska at Omaha Chamber Choir under the direction of Dr. Cina Crisara. Additionally, this concert was broadcast on Nebraska Public Radio.

Precious Child is a unique portrayal of the nativity depicting Mary and Joseph rocking the baby Jesus to sleep as they struggle with the wonder of a helpless baby’s role in the salvation of mankind. It is at the same time a lullaby and a glorious reflection of Heaven’s musical rejoice at Christ’s birth.

Audiences and performers alike adore Precious Child. It is a charming and beautifully lyric original setting of the nativity. The text is also original and will fit in wonderfully with any Christmas concert repertoire. You may even find yourself singing the melody to your children as a lullaby after the concert.

TEXT:
Oh, my precious child, do you hear the angels singing? Alleluia to the Lord!
Fast to sleep, close your eyes, now lay down your head. Alleluia!

Oh, my precious child, do you know that you are king? Alleluia to the King!
Precious child, do you see the bright shining star? Alleluia!

Oh, my precious child, do you hear the angels singing? Alleluia to the Lord!
Anthems ring! Glorious sounds of Heaven rejoice! Alleluia!

Premiere: University Of Nebraska, Recital Choir, March 11, 1998
