(Summer 2009) A la Mack Wilberg. That has a nice ring to it, eh? :) Every once in awhile I consider a challenge to match the style of another, more famous composer and make his/her style my own. I am a HUGE fan of Mack Wilberg (who isn't?) and just love his arrangement of "Away in a Manger." My "Jesus the Very" is a mimic of the "Manger" style, in the same key, with an organ and flute to back up the choir, with an a cappella last verse. I'm very proud of this piece, hopefully someone will mistake it for a Wilbergian number!
