Sarah Clevely writes: 'This new arrangement of Silent Night is written in D major, a bright and cheerful key signature. Traditionally, this carol is sung very quietly and the tempo is fairly slow. Whilst I wanted to observe the 3/4 time signature as it gives a lullaby feel to the music, I wanted a slightly faster tempo and to vary the dynamics. The song begins quietly and as it moves for ward so the piano and voices build in both dynamics and range, culminating in the joyful and celebratory final verse. The simple harmonies weave in and out of each other helping to keep the pace flowing forwards.'

Sarah Clevely has been composing since her mid-teens focusing mainly on choral music. She is a passionate educationalist and recently completed a Diploma and a Masters in Music. She has taught music to pre-school children and held the post of Music Specialist at a Montessori nursery school.

Sarah Clevely's love of Christmas and children is clearly reflected in this carols which should appeal to any adventurous school choir looking for something new at Christmas.
