A Child Is Born Upon This Night (Orchestration)

A Child Is Born Upon This Night (Orchestration)

This arrangement is an English language version of the Swedish Carol “Ett barn är fött på denna dag” which is itself an adaptation of Martin Luther’s “Vom Himmel hoch, da komm ich her” (From Heaven Above to Earth I Come). This setting retains the melody of the Swedish version, but the new English lyrics draw from both the Swedish and German hymns. Scored for piano or strings, piano, harp, and percussion, this is an upbeat, joyous celebration of the Christmas season using music and text not familiar to most audiences.
