This year, as part of my composition studies at UNC-Greensboro, I had a class in orchestration and was tasked with arranging a piece for strings. I chose my SATB acapella setting of “Away in a Manger”.
The piece got a reading from the excellent Gate City Camerata, and I was quite pleased with how the recording turned out. (Unfortunately there was no video, but the audio was pretty good.) So here’s some Christmas music for you.
If the player above doesn’t work, try a link to Soundcloud.
To hear the original choral version, see this post: Away in a Manger (SATB).
