2017 Holiday Contest Entry

Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene havecreated what has quickly become a contemporary, Christmas classic. Recorded bypopular artists from Clay Aiken to Pentatonix, this compelling song remains atthe top of the charts around the world.

In this cello/piano duet, I’vetried to capture that mysterious contemplation the lyricists have sosuccessfully communicated. Of course, the cello’s timbre quite effectivelycreates the mood, but also the piano’s gentle, rhythmic accompaniment keeps theforward motion going and adds to the “lullaby” quality of the piece. Bothinstruments are given their turn at the melody, and each must “sing” the wordsto help the arrangement communicate to the audience. Without any hesitation,boldly play that final phrase and satisfying chord at the end, where thelyricist concludes, “This sleeping Child You’re holding / Is the great I AM.”
