SILENT, STILL THE NIGHT for Adult Voice, Treble Voice (Children’s Choir) and Orchestra

Two Traditional Austrian Carols Arranged by Fred Morden

Duration: 5’55”

Orchestration: 

2-2*-2-2/4-3-3-1/2 perc-tmp-hrp-Adult Voice-Treble Voices/Solo Violin-Strings 

A touching melodic interplay between two well-known Austrian Carols.  As though a parent was singing to their children with the children’s musical response.  Elegantly scored for orchestra, meaningful use of text, the arrangement drifts ever softly through the last “Alleluia” into silence. 

Commissioned by the Knoxville Symphony

Kirk Trevor, Music Director and Conductor
