This gentle partner song conveys a plaintive call for "love's pure light" to bring peace and harmony in the holiday season. It opens with the beloved carol tune "Cradle Song," (commonly known as "Away in a Manger"), sung to an inspired new text that prepares the entrance of the familiar canon "Dona Nobis Pacem." In the final verse, the two tunes combine in their call for peace. Colorful harmonies and an optional flute obbligato highlight this easily prepared offering for singers of all ages for holiday concerts and Advent and Christmas worship.

  • December 17, 2008 Music for Lighting the Advent Candle

    For the hard to find music for the advent searson and especially to celebrate the lighting of the advent candle, this piece was a great surprise. The girls from our church's Youth Choir performed this piece for the lighting of the advent peace candle and it was simply beautiful...

    . The performers learned the piece in only two practices! We will be using this song for many years in a variety of ways. This song is a wonderful addition to the advent seaason.
