Everyone knows Away In A Manger, but that doesnít stop it being a sublimely,
serenely, beautiful carol.
Iíve tried to make this arrangement as accessible as possible, and the "flexibleĒ
mention on the title page means that itís possible to play without all the parts. The
greatest richness of harmony is achieved with everyone there, but it still sounds lovely
in the following reduced combinations:
Melody / Melody & Descant / Harmony 1;
Melody / Harmony 1 / Harmony 2 (this is particularly suitable for conservative players
who think Iím tampering with a perfectly good carol by adding a descant);
Melody / Harmony 1 / Harmony-2-for-the-first-two-verses-then-switching-to-Descant;
Itís even effective with just Melody / Harmony 1 if youíre really short of players!
Whatever you choose to do, Iím sure youíll bring pleasure to a lot of listeners...
