This stunning a cappella setting of the traditional Austrian carol uses a rich variety of tones and colors that converge in a spectacular fashion that makes the text come alive. One of Garrett Breeze’s most popular arrangements, the piece was originally commissioned and recorded by North Central High School in Indianapolis and later performed at the 2019 ACDA National Convention in Kansas City by Sioux Falls Roosevelt High School. Engaging for performers and accessible to audiences, it is sure to be an unforgettable part of your Holiday concert season.

Still, Still, Still. One can hear the falling snow. For all is hushed, the world is sleeping, Holy Star its vigil keeping. Still, still, still. One can hear the falling snow.
Sleep, sleep, sleep. ‘Tis the eve of our Savior’s birth. The night is peaceful all around you, close your eyes, let sleep surround you. Sleep, sleep, sleep. ‘Tis the eve of our Savior’s birth.
Dream, dream, dream of the joyous day to come. While guardian angels without number, watch you as you sweetly slumber. Dream, dream, dream of the joyous day to come.
