An Appalachian Carol

“An Appalachian Carol” is a 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.

With flowing lines and a mix of traditional and contemporary harmonies, “An Appalachian Carol” is an ideal prelude or offertory to worship, and an ideal addition to any program of holiday music.
