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:

Inspired by the account of Christ’s birth as recorded in the Book of Mormon. I originally wrote this as a unison piece for a very tiny choir in a very tiny branch. Many years later,  I met up with a young sister who had attended that branch as a child and recalled singing it. She told me it had been one of her favorites and she had remembered the lyrics for over twenty years! She inspired me to re-work the piece into an SAB voicing, and my current branch choir performed it at our Stake Carol Festival in 2012. Thanks to Rachel Bratt Howard for lighting a fire under me!
