An arrangement of the Horatio and Isabella Parker Cradle Hymn from their Christmas cantata The Holy Child. Originally published in 1893 as a soprano and tenor duet, this arrangement is for SATB choir with piano accompaniment.
Written for a small church choir which was light on tenor and bass voices. While easy for the choir to learn and sing, there is a lot of musical interest, including the counterpoint in the piano and a cleverly hidden modulation towards the end of the music. Appropriate for baptism or Eastertide.Anthem, Baptism, Eastertide, English, Piano, Sacred, SATB
