Michael Eglin has set this beautiful Appalachian Christmas carol with enough variety in texture to produce a captivating piece yet maintaining the simplicity of the original tune. Three verses are set for tutti choir, men then women, and a return to tutti for the final verse. A quiet, reflective spirit permeates throughout.
