A familiar hymn with a fresh accompaniments along with a few delightful variations in the melody. Moderate difficulty for the voice, somewhat difficult for the accompanist. Dr. Newman wrote two versions of this solo, one for organ, the other for piano. Each version capitalizes on the characteristics of the accompanying instrument. The piano version uses sweeping arpeggios. Gentle and lovely, in keeping with the words and music of the original hymn. Words: Phillips Brooks. Music: Philip E. Newman. Copyright 2004 Anabel P. Newman.

Lyrics

O Little Town
Music: Christmas Carol by H. Walford Davies, arr. Philip E.
Newman
Words: Phillips Brooks

O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie;
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by;
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.

O morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth,
And praises sing to God the King,
And peace to men on earth;
Where charity stands watching
And faith holds wide the door,
The dark night wakes, the glory breaks,
And Christmas comes once more.

How silently, how silently,
The wondrous gift is given;
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven.
No ear may hear his coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meekness will receive him, still
The dear Christ enters in.
