This is a beautiful setting of Franz Gruber's traditional Christmas carol. The first verse uses very simple accompaniment to highlight the viola's rich beautiful tones. The second verse keeps the viola beauty, while not making this simple carol too "flashy." The accompaniment use ideas from Brahms' famous lullaby, "Wiegenlied: Guten Abend, gute Nacht," to set a calm and peaceful mood. The arranger has also included some shiftings suitable for advancing students. This piece is sure to help everyone focus on the message of this carol.

    I love how relaxing and beautiful this arrangement is. It is so appropriate set for the viola and made a great addition to special music at my church for Christmas.
