    An absolutely beautiful Christmas song with amazing harmony, the song tells a moving story; the cello adds depth to the music part, a Christmas favorite

    This piece is beautiful! Every member of my choir fell in love with it as we began learning it. The cello adds so much more feeling to the song. I love the harmony in the a capella section.

    This piece is new to our choir this year, but is sure to become an annual favorite. We love the fact that the audio is available to listen to on this site, and it helped introduce choir members to the song. The cello is going to add the perfect touch...

    to a beautiful song.
