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. 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).
