Away in a Manger


A unique incorporation of all three popular tunes to Away in a Manger.

Cheesy synth rendition (trust me- it works!)


Programme Notes:

 There have been many melodies composed to the words of Away in a Manger since it first came on the scene in 1885, but the tunes by William J. Kirkpatrick and James R. Murray have been the ones that have endured.  Additionally, a melody composed by Jonathan E. Spilman (known by its more familiar title, Flow Gently, Sweet Afton) has been used as well.  All three tunes appear in this arrangement.

Performance Notes:

The flugelhorn and euphonium parts may be played on the usual combination of trumpets and trombone as desired.
