This wonderful song, even without lyrics, so effectively communicates both the fragility and the grandeur of the Nativity.

Lovely, rich, dark
I think it is a challenge to make this tune sound fresh, but you have
done it, John. Gorgeous chords and a piano setting that brings out the
fragility you describe. Beautiful!

Very well done with that terrific John Stebbe touch.
Like the light dinner jazz feel in subtle parts.

again, nice stuff
I am new to MJ but if there are more musicians like yourself, I will visit
quite a bit. Again, nice use of the full range of the piano. Too short, but I
like the arrangement. nice, simple, effective.
