Its lullaby-like qualities make this simple tune a fitting representation of the lowly circumstances of the Christ-child’s birth in a stable, wrapped in swaddling cloths and laid in a manger.
With flowing lines and a mix of traditional and contemporary harmonies, “An Appalachian Carol” is an ideal prelude or offertory to worship, and an ideal addition to any program of holiday music.
