In the Still of Night
This song is based on Prelude in E minor by Polish composer Frédéric Chopin. To me this one of the most beautiful piano pieces ever written. The words fit a theme for which I find there are little resources for - what is often known as "the slaughter of the innocents" which falls on the Sunday after Christmas. I felt that Chopin's moving prelude provided the perfect backdrop for this theme. Scripture references: Matthew 2: 13-18, Luke 4: 18 -19, Luke 1: 46-55 (Mary's Magnificat).
