The First Christmas

Music by Celius Dougherty

A star was His nightlight, His quilt was the sky; And soft sang His mother in case He should cry. This tender setting is a lullaby to the Child in the manger, and is equally effective in church or concert performances.

Celius Dougherty : 30 Art Songs in Original Keys

American composer Celius Dougherty (1902-1986) is best remembered for his art songs. Gracious and witty, they show a love of words, with texts ranging from the most elite English and American poets to a dictionary entry (Love in the Dictionary). With a deep understanding of the voice and the piano, Dougherty created a body of song literature that lives on in a steady flow of student and professional performances. This edition includes several songs that were previously unpublished. Singers will love Review, a hilariously detailed critic's account of a voice recital.

Songlist: Serenader, Tapestry, Portrait, Primavera, The First Christmas, O BY THE BY, UNTIL AND I HEARD, Beauty is not caused, The Bird and the Beast, The Children's Letter to the United Nations, Declaration of Independence, Everyone Sang, Green Meadows, Hush'd be the camps today, The K'e, little fourpaws, Love in the Dictionary, Loveliest of trees, Madonna of the Evening Flowers, A Minor Bird, Pianissimo, Review, Sonatina (Dougherty), Song for Autumn, Sound the Flute!, The Stranger, thy fingers make early flowers, Upstream, Weathers, What the Bullet Sang
