O Little Town of Bethlehem

O Little Town of Bethlehem (arr. June 2012) is a delicate arrangement for small orchestra and optional singer in F major that combines impressionistic influences and soft muted Strings and soloistic woodlines lines to create a warm Christmas feeling of serene beauty and tranquil overtones.  Heard three times through in its entirety a quiet music box introduction and ending round out the bookends of this simple 1800 Episcopal hymn.   Thoughtfully orchestrated and beautifully rendered, this arrangement is a peaceful and hushed version of the popular public domain song about the Palestinian city of Bethlehem.
