Away in a manger – Cradle song

First line:
Away in a manger
composer
arranger
author of text
Philadelphia 1883

 
The text of Away in a manger, derived from passages in St Luke’s Gospel, was believed to be the work of Martin Luther, but later scholarship has found it to be probably of American origin. One of the two most frequently performed musical settings is by the Irish-born William James Kirkpatrick, whose family settled in America when he was still an infant. The carol is generally considered to be among the two or three most popular ever composed. The arrangement recorded here is by Robert Quinney, Organist of New College Oxford.
