More about Don Sherwood:
Originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado, Don is a father of 8 children and grandfather of 3 (so far). He studied music at Brigham Young University for a time before switching gears to pursue a career in Software Engineering, but has continued to be engaged in musical pursuits throughout his life, playing the cello or bass in many community symphonies over the years, and writing a number of hymn arrangements - mostly for ward and stake choirs. He serves now as choir director (for the 4th time) in his ward in Eagle Mountain, Utah.
Song background:

A friend of mine asked me the other day if I had written an arrangement of The First Noel, and I realized that I had not. So I sat down and started one, with two objectives: I wanted it to not sound like the original hymn, and I wanted it to be simple for both the choir and the pianist to learn. Oh, and I wanted it to sound like Christmas and be uplifting to listen to... Okay, so that's four objectives. I did it by borrowing melodies (and some words) from other Christmas hymns. I hope you like it.
