Set to the poetry of X. J. Kennedy, a modern poet and writer living in Massachusetts. According to Carol Wood, his cycle of poems, “The Beasts of Bethlehem”, is a new element in the rich traditions associating animals with the Christmas story. The music, written for alto voice, is soothing and evocative at the same time. The accompaniments work as an underlying effect at all times supporting the melody and most importantly, the words. A performance of this work is a most exceptional way to celebrate the Holy Days of December. We are fortunate that Carol Wood is creating You Tubes of her marvelous music! See below!
