Arrangement of Cradle Song (Away in a Manger)

I recently arranged a four part harmonization of the tune cradle song. Not all that interesting, except that I am experimenting with diminished triads and 7th chords. I think it came out rather nicely. The motivation was a lame arrangement that was brought home by a sibling from a Christmas program.

Feedback anyone?

    That’s nice! I like the ‘Cradle Song’ version better than the tune sung in most Sunday Schools!
