The little road to Bethlehem

First line:
As I walked down the road at set of sun
composer
1946; for Olive Groves
author of text

 
The little road to Bethlehem (1946) immediately became a best-seller and Head’s most popular song. Margaret Rose’s poem, with its imagery of sheep, is set to an insouciant melody, reminiscent of a folksong, which encapsulates the inno­cence of the Holy Child. Here is music of simplicity and sentimentality that charms, rather than cloys.
