Away in a Manger
Mueller - Christmas CarolThis 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.
This score is an arrangement for easy viola with piano accompaniment.
It is set in the key of D Major, modulating to G Major.
It is appropriate for Grade 3 violists.
The viola part can be played entirely in the first position.
Please note that there exists an alternate version of Away in a Manger by William James Kirkpatrick : Away in a Manger (Kirkpatrick).
