Item Number: S0.86873

In this arrangement, I’ve taken the “less is more” approach. Because of its innate beauty, I’ve not adorned the melody very much. Of course, I couldn’t leave out the traditional triplets, so I’ve included them in each verse as a “throwback” to the original. Make sure to distinguish clearly between the straight eighth notes and the triplet combinations.

As far as piano arrangements go, this is a little long, so don’t let the tempo drag. Keep moving steadily forward, with the final climax always in mind. At the D major key change, communicate that beautiful text: Fall on your knees / O hear the angel voices.

    This piece can be played in 3 distinct verses or in its entirety. The modulations give contrast of separation or refresh the ear. The final section features a climactic and slightly showy ending. It's distinguishing beginning 2 measure motive carries throughout the piece, making a beautiful statement each time...

    . I label it as "A Floater" just as the given expression states, "Softly, ethereal." Wonderful choice for a piano solo. The piano tones just float out and linger in the ear. Lots of sostenuto pedal but for not the entire piece. No pedal markings so you need to use your musicianship. I played the first section for my church's Candlelight Christmas service during the actual candle lighting. It's a definite part of my Christmas piano repertoire.
