More about Donnalynn Grunewald:
Most of my music is original. Because I have lived in small branches for most of my life, I try to write songs that can be performed by a small group or a choir of inexperienced singers.
Song background:

Don’t let the voicing S(S)AB scare you off. If my tiny choir can perform this, so can yours!

In verse one, the men are featured. Verse two gives the melody to the sopranos, with an alto line below them in a different rhythm. The verse ends with three part womens’ voices, which can optionally be reduced to two voices, if need be.

The third verse begins with the men having the melody once more, being echoed by the women.

In the last stanza, the three voices (SAB) combine contrapuntally and conclude the piece with the dying echoes of “We are the stars…”

Lyrics: We are the stars in the Beth’lem sky. Oh, we are the stars in the Beth’lem sky.
We are the stars in the Beth’lem sky and we watch o’er the baby Jesu.

Hush, ye creatures and let Him sleep. Oh, hush, ye creatures and let Him sleep.
Hush, ye creatures and let Him sleep for the child is the baby Jesu.

Come, ye shepherds and gather ’round. Oh, come, ye shepherds and gather ’round.
Hush, ye shepherds and gather ’round. Come and worship the baby Jesu.

Sing, ye angels, aloud for joy. Oh, sing, ye angels, aloud for joy.
Sing, ye angels, aloud for joy. Come and sing to the baby Jesu.

We are the stars…
