it came upon a midnight clear

Merry Christmas, friends! 

I've been reharmonizing and improvising on carols over the past years and the latest is this setting of 'It Came Upon a Midnight Clear.' It departs quite a bit from the original but I think the unexpected harmonic turns and moving inner lines express this beautiful carol in a new way. I hope you enjoy!
