Infant Holy, Infant Lowly






SKU: 41F180FH0280


Infant Holy, Infant Lowly arranged by Ann Cameron Pearce for Flute Choir
Scored for 6 C Flutes or 4 C Flutes, Alto Flute and Bass Flute
Includes score and parts

Another name for this ancient Polish carol of unknown origin is “Jesus Holy, Born So Lowly.”  First published in the collection “Spiewniczek Piesni Koscieine” in 1908, it describes the stable scene of the baby Jesus lying in a manger bed with the animals nearby.  Also mentioned in the text is the hillside where the shepherds heard the angels' story and rejoiced.

The tender melody as depicted here is about 2.75 minutes long and can be performed satisfactorily with 6 C Flutes. Of course, adding alto and bass flutes creates a fuller texture and contrabass doubling the bass part would expand the flute choir sound even more.

Also known as “Lying in a Manger,” this piece expresses the magic of Christmas Eve in a very simple, yet compelling manner that has endeared it to many generations of Christians. Its short concise phrases move the piece forwaed, culminating in the final statement: “Christ the babe is Lord of all.” Flutists who understand its meaning will be better equipped to perform with appropriate expression.
