William J. Kirkpatrick : Away in a Manger - Cradle Song

This favourite Christmas Carol is particularly popular with children, perhaps due to its simplicity - it is often sung quietly as a Christmas Lullaby. The music most commonly used for the carol in the UK is sometimes called "Cradle Song" and was composed by William J. Kirkpatrick (1838-1921), a musician and composer who came from Philadelphia and wrote many hymns in support of his local church.
