Away in a Manger

Mueller - Sacred Song - Christmas Carol



This beautiful and famous Christmas carol Away in a Manger is set to the tune Mueller by James Ramsey Murray.

It was first published in 1887 in Dainty Songs for Little Lads and Lasses (New York : J. Church Co., 1887).

At that time, Murray gave it the subtitle Luther's Cradle Hymn, refering to the German reformer Rev. Martin Luther (1483-1546).

However, it is now generally accepted that Luther did not compose this song, but that Murray himself did.

The authors of the lyrics remain unknown.

The first two verses of the lyrics were first published in 1884.

The third verse was first printed in Gabriel's Vineyard Songs in 1892.

The meter is 11.11.11.11.

This score is an arrangement for piano.

It is set in the key of F Major.

It is appropriate for Grade 5 piano players.

For your greater enjoyment, this score includes the complete lyrics in English (three verses).

Please note that there exists an alternate version of Away in a Manger by William James Kirkpatrick : Away in a Manger (Kirkpatrick).

Duration : 00:44 per verse
