Little Angel, a Christmas Carol by Judith Lang Zaimont Now Available From Subito Music for Holiday 2014 Programming
Date: August 26, 2014
Little Angel, a new, lyrical and original Christmas carol by Judith Lang Zaimont is now available from Subito Music for Holiday 2014 programming - http://store.subitomusic.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3_261_557&products_id=6696.
The composer writes, “Many depictions of the Nativity show a scene with an Angel hovering above. I wondered about that Angel and then imagined that a child, who’d naturally be curious about the wondrous commotion in the manger, might politely ask permission of this ‘sentry’ Angel to come closer and stand beside the Babe.”
“From that imagining came the idea for a new Christmas carol. The original poem, written jointly by myself and my sister, conductor Doris Kosloff, was composed after I wrote the melody and then adjusted along the way as the complete carol developed.”
The close of the first verse is:
Through His light
the Prince of Goodness
Graces all the Earth this day --
Angel, may I stand before Him,
Angel, will you lead the way?
-- Lead me to the Holiest Child.
