How Far Is It To Bethlehem?

Having already arranged many Christmas favorites for flute choir, I searched for a little-known piece and found this little gem on the sale rack of choral music in my local music store. I was immediately inspired by its gentle melody that alludes to a sweet little lullaby.

The Raleigh Flute Choir premiered it at our 23rd annual concert at the North Carolina Museum of Art and then shared it with the congregation during worship at Highland United Methodist Church. On both instances we enjoyed placing the first flute soloist at the back of the hall to produce the echo effect.
