“Night of Nights” is my Christmas carol for 2022.
Original Christmas carol: Words by Edmund H. Sears; Music by Richard S. Willis. Arrangement for four-hand piano accompaniment by Sally DeFord.
As I thought about the individuals involved with that holy night, I wondered… for whom was that star shining? And for whom does it shine today?
Words by Sally DeFord; Music by Katherine Wright. This lullaby is my Christmas Card Carol for 2021.
Is there room in my heart, or is every chamber full?
