"Infant Holy, Born So Lowly" is one of the oldest traditional Polish Christmas songs and can be found in present day hymnals. A simple folk tune, the origins of this stately melody date from the 13th or 14th century. The lyrics depict a manger song, and the music has been performed as a circle dance.
This arrangement for saxophone quartet (SATBar), rather than favoring a soprano solo with accompaniment, strives to include all the players in the music making by distributing the melodic material. In addition, all dynamics and articulations, minimally marked, should be taken as suggestions only, as performers are encouraged to make their own interpretations.
