This is not the traditional carol that is known the world over! Rather, it is an original, thoughtful—and thought-provoking—poem by one of today’s finest writers, set to a new tune that fits the text beautifully. The piece is not difficult, but requires a simplicity that must be maintained throughout. The final verse is a cappella and leads to a peaceful coda by the keyboard and C instrument (oboe is recommended).
