Sobre

This is an arrangement of 'Away in a Manger' for piano, grade 2-3. It is good practice for training the top fingers of the left hand to become independent while the fifth finger holds down pedal note. The piece should be played gently, like a lullaby, with the two phrases rising and falling. Try using the sustain pedal a bit for extra smoothness.

No-one is quite sure who wrote the words of 'Away in a Manger', and this has led to some heated arguments between academic types. A few have suggested Martin Luther had something to do with it, but most now reckon he didn't.

To add to the confusion, people living in the UK sing a different tune from the Americans to the much-loved Christmas carol. The version here is the tune used in the UK, and was written by (strangely enough) an American musician called William J. Kirkpatrick.
