The Shepherds' Farewell

Available from Morning Star Music Publishing at or 800-647-2117
From The Childhood of Christ, Op.25. This quiet chorus from the oratorio, L'enfance du Christ, written in 1854 when Berlioz was 51, is found in Part II, The Flight into Egypt. Perhaps it was his intent to convey the spiritual transformation of the shepherds following their encounter with the Christ child. Optional MIDI file available separately (on MIDI disk LMF-1001)
