These three stanzas on the more familiar “Away in a Manger” melody (mueller) make a perfect architectural soundscape: verse 1 for solo, unison (children’s voices would be brilliant); verse 2 for TB voices; verse 3 for SATB choir.
It could be done with solo piano or a more magical realization with optional flute, oboe, cello, harp and organ.
