One of 42 new carols published by RSCM in their 2020 Christmas collection
Song of the shepherds is a delightful carol which tells the familiar story of the shepherds but with modern words written by the composer. The refrain is jazzy in style and still within easy grasp of a parish church choir. The organ interludes reference other carols, including While shepherds watched, O little town of Bethlehem and Away in a Manger, adding to its immediate appeal. Song of the shepherds is sure to become a Christmas staple for years to come.
