2017 Holiday Contest Entry

This carol is one of the Christmas season’smost loved! Originally titled “Luther’s Cradle Hymn,” “Away in a Manger” wasthought to have been penned by the reformer Martin Luther for his own children;however, that claim has never been fully substantiated.

In this delicate arrangement forsolo piano, the memorable melody is simply accompanied by sustained chords.This setting slowly builds to the third stanza, where the pianist is challengedwith some octaves in both the right and left hands. In this climacticstatement, the lyric passionately pleads, “Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Theeto stay.”

Both late intermediate and advancedpianists will enjoy playing this arrangement of a classic Christmas carol!
