Child of Mary (SATB + oboe) Christmas choral anthem
As a Babe Was Born in Bethlehem
This Christmas choral anthem has been sung by choirs with minimal preparation and good response from the congregations.
Many thanks to Robert Passow for the mp3! It is a recording of the choir he directed during the Christmas Eve 2003 service at Church of the Pilgrims (Presbyterian) in Washington DC. I can’t guarantee that the baby will cry at the right time for you as it did for him.
If you use a flute instead of the oboe, you might want to use the transpose button and put everything up a step (as Rob did). Or the flute could play the intro and interlude up an octave. The oboe part can be transposed if you use something other than a C instrument.
There is also a hymnal style arrangement of this Christmas carol for congregational singing. And an arrangement for children's choir that includes a piano accompaniment. These scores are here on Score Exchange as well.
