Beschreibung
‘This holy night’ sets new, Christmas words to the familiar Londonderry Air tune. An atmospheric piano accompaniment sets the scene of the stable under the stars. The piece is suitable for Upper Voices – children or women, with an optional Alto line for choirs which prefer to sing in 3-part SSA.

This holy night, whilst all around are sleeping,
In stable, bare, a maiden lies awake,
The Father, too, a watchful eye is keeping
Upon His Son, whose life will death forsake.

A star appears, it’s twinkling in the heavens,
Its message, ‘come, and see the holy birth.’
The shepherds hurry through the streets of Bethlehem,
To see the child who’ll bring us peace on earth.

The wise men, too, are drawing ever closer,
They bring their gifts of incense, myrrh and gold,
When they arrive they kneel before the Christ-child,
The little baby is a myst’ry to behold.
