Product Details


"The Sleep of the Infant Jesus" is a ballad carol that is also a lullaby. Traditionally French, the tune dates before 1800, but the composer is unknown. Although little known, the tune is a beautiful and serene Christmas folk melody.

This arrangement for saxophone quartet (SATBar), rather than favoring a soprano solo with accompaniment, strives to include all the players in the music making, particularly by distributing melodic material. In addition, all dynamics and articulations should be taken as suggestions only, as performers are encouraged to make their own interpretations. Arranged for saxophone quartet.
