AWAY IN A MANGER

A new modal setting of the traditional carol for a cappella SATB choir.

  • 2009
  • 2 minutes

This is a completely new setting of the well-known carol. The three verses are set strophically and homophonically in a modal A minor, but ending, each time, on the flattened seventh chord – a “stable” G major!

Also available for unison voices and piano or organ.
