From the “Manuals only music for Christmas” book: Roberto Fresia is organist at the Cathedral of Cunco (Piedmont, Italy), where teaches at Diocesan Institute of Sacred Music. ‘Bethlehem’ is the meeting place for shepherds and for every believer (theme A) with baby Jesus in a stable. The light of the child heartens them (theme B). The shepherds return (theme A). The style recalls the classic Italian pastoral. Roberto’s piece was adjudged to be, “A pastorale with some attractive individual touches (eg. the melody of the opening few bars)”. I used the Alessandria sample set by Piotr Grabowski for this recording.
