SATB and keyboard.
[PDF Sample]

Words by Timothy Dudley Smith.
Not available from this site for USA or Canada.

Timothy Dudley-Smith’s words Child of the Stable’s Secret Birth, although beginning with the nativity, is conscious that ‘the world is weaving a crown of thorn’. Beautiful music by Valerie Ruddle (a gentle lullaby) and equally haunting words have given this carol a worldwide following.

The carol makes varied use of SATB and keyboard arrangement with one verse being unaccompanied.
