An Appalachian Carol — brass quintet
With flowing lines and a mix of traditional and contemporary harmonies, the lullaby-like “An Appalachian Carol,” arranged by Todd Marchand, is an ideal prelude to or offertory at worship, and an ideal addition to any program of Christmas holiday music.
This lovely American folk melody is believed to have originated in 19th century in the east-central United States region of Appalachia. Its lullaby-like qualities make this simple tune a fitting representation of the lowly circumstances of the Christ-child’s birth in a stable, wrapped in swaddling cloths and laid in a manger.
