Away in a Manger


1. Intro - solo instrument begins with "the little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay" and play to the end with either piano or guitar playing arpeggios.


2. First verse - Female solo till third phrase when two harmony voices join.  Piano or guitar playing arpeggios as accompaniment.


3. Second verse - Men sing melody with women singing harmony parts. Full rhythm section accompanying.


4. Third verse - divide men and women between melody and harmony parts with soloist leading on melody and instruments divided between melody and harmony parts with one instrument playing obbligato part.





There are many other possibilities for using this arrangement for special music or leading worship.




Why is TH4CW Collection 1 such a Special Value?

Have you ever bought music books for an ensemble?  Usually you have to buy separate books for each instrument.  That's a book for Bb instruments and another book for F instruments and so on... not to mention that you violate the copyright if you copy the music for additional instrumentalists. 


The cost adds up quickly. 

Look at this example to compare costs.

Purchase TH4CW and receive 14 hymns and get the rights to copy as needed for your ensemble at no additional cost.  All parts included for each hymn and if you need transpositions that are not included contact me and I will send them to you at no additional cost.

Total cost = $26.00


Music books with 8-10 hymns for each instrument:

  • Vocal edition - $14.95
  •  Rhythm edition - $14.95
  • Bb (trumpet, tenor sax, clarinet) edition - $14.95
  • C (Flute) edition - $14.95
  • C - Bass clef (trombone, tuba) edition - $14.95
  • F - (horn) edition - $14.95
  • Eb - (alto sax) edition - $14.95

Total for 1 each is $104.65 plus tax

Some problems:

  1. Other hymn arrangements don't provide the flexibility you have with TH4CW.
  2. Not supposed to copy so legally you should buy a book for each person.
  3. Hopefully, you can find books for all instruments.
