Maria durch ein Dornwald ging
, German carol, tr. Henry S. Drinker, 1880–1965

Series: Christmas

Difficulty Level: E/M


From the gifted composer Daniel Burton comes a fresh treatment of these words. The gently pulsing pedal part in the organ seems to propel the text forward, imitative of Mary and Joseph walking on their journey. The anthem is easily learned in the midst of hectic Christmas preparations.
