I wonder as I wander
composer
author of text
possibly an Appalacian carol

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The widely known and hauntingly beautiful I wonder as I wander may or may not be an authentic Appalachian folk carol. It was claimed as such by the collector John Jacob Niles, but some have harboured the suspicion that it is in fact all his own work. Rutter hangs on its spare lines an arrangement which combines simplicity and a quiet intensity.
