Though often thought to be an anonymousfolk tune, “I Wonder As I Wander” is a Christian hymn written by American folklorist, singer, and songwriter John Jacob Niles. Typically performed as an Advent or Christmas carol, it is based ona song fragment Niles collected in 1933 while in the Appalachiantown of Murphy, North Carolina, where it was sung by a young girl. Its arching, modal melodic line is haunting and wistful in itseffect.

This advanced intermediate-level arrangement is quick to rehearse, satisfying to play, and well-received by audiences. Suitable for advanced high school and college students, community ensembles, and professionals.
