The final verse includes a gentle descant, which soars serenely above the other voices. An accompaniment for string orchestra is available on hire/rental.

About Bob Chilcott

Bob Chilcott has been involved with choral music all his life, first as a Chorister and then a Choral Scholar at King's College, Cambridge. Later, he sang and composed music for 12 years with the King's Singers. His experiences with that group, his passionate commitment to young and amateur choirs, and his profound belief that music can unite people, have inspired him both to compose full-time and, through proactive workshopping, to promote choral music more

Review quote

Bob Chilcott writes superbly well for voices . . . Away in a manger is an arrangement of what is now the standard American tune by James R. Murray, commendably straightforward with verses for unison upper voices (or solo), SATB unaccompanied, and then unison with descant. The organ supports discreetly in verse 1 and firmly but unostentatiously in verse 3. * James L. Montgomery, Church Music Quarterly, September 13 *show more
