Wafting as easily as a folk song, this tune feels like a familiar lullaby. Quoting the familiar “Still, Still, Still,” the piano ushers in the voices singing in thirds to create a dreamy ambience for this retelling of Jesus' birth. Composed by a direct descendant of Franz Grüber, the modern carol pays homage to classic carol style. The piano writing acts independently of the voices to festoon the melody with gentle passage work. Peace, love and joy for your worship services!
