The American folk song "Jesus, Jesus, Rest Your Head" is a gentle lullaby portraying the irony of the Christ Child sleeping in a lowly manger while "evil folk"sleep on feathers at their birth. The lyrical tune is simple and beautifully realized with a solo violin as the introduction. Sweet, colorful sonorities from the choir illustrate the awe of the animals at the incarnation, while the harp is evoked in the piano accompaniment - perfect for any Christmas service.
