The Appalachian folk carol, "Jesus, Jesus, Rest Your Head," was collected by folk musicologist (and the composer of the tune, "I Wonder as I Wander"), John Jacob Niles, in the early Twentieth Century. This hauntingly beautiful arrangement of the tune explores the Nativity with peaceful reverence and mysterious wonder. Watson s writing includes expressive tempo changes, lush scoring for full band, transparent episodes for woodwinds, and delicate percussion writing, offering bands ample opportunity for performing with musical beauty and eloquence.
