Description

The Appalachian folk carol, "Jesus, Jesus, Rest Your Head," was collected by folk musicologist (and the composer of the tune, "I Wonder as I Wander"), John Jacob Niles, in the early Twentieth Century. This hauntingly beautiful arrangement of the tune explores the Nativity with peaceful reverence and mysterious wonder. Watson's writing includes expressive tempo changes, lush scoring for full band, transparent episodes for woodwinds, and delicate percussion writing, offering bands ample opportunity for performing with musical beauty and eloquence. (3:50)
