Listen to the beginner piano arrangement of Away In A Manger.
Away in a Manger is a Christmas carol first published in 1885 in Philadelphia and used widely throughout the English-speaking world. The song was first published with two verses in an Evangelical Lutheran Sunday School collection, Little Children’s Book for Schools and Families (1885), edited by James R. Murray (1841-1905), where it simply bore the title “Away in a Manger” and was set to a tune called “St. Kilda,” credited to J.E. Clark.
Murray’s tune, which is the tune most commonly printed in the U.S., is typically given the name “Mueller.” A second popular tune, “Cradle Song,” was written by William J. Kirkpatrick for the musical Around the World with Christmas (1895)
