Child of the stable's secret birth

author of text

Child of the stable’s secret birth (2009) was the first of several carols I had published by Oxford University Press. It has since become one of my most well-known seasonal pieces, having seen performances all over the world (including one on YouTube from Southern India, with the charming sound of scooters passing in the background.) The vocal parts can be assigned to any combination of voices, and the rise and fall of the gentle melody weaves its way around Timothy Dudley-Smith’s timeless text.
