Away in a Manger Duet for Two Voices with Piano
Arranged by Michelle Willis
This unique duet arrangement mixes two familiar tunes of this favorite Christmas carol. Piece can be performed by two single voices, or by splitting a large choir (ex. women and men or sopranos/tenors and altos/bass). The piece begins with William J Kirkpatrick's beloved melody with the second verse the alternate anonymous melody. For the third verse, both melodies combine together in a surprisingly natural way. The piano accompaniment throughout is written to be reminiscent of a guitar strumming. This piece includes an optional clarinet solo. Suitable selection for school or church choirs including LDS ward or stake choir Christmas programs.
