Away in a Manger (Op.48 No.1)

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

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.
