Once in Royal David's City

Two years ago, I heard Once in Royal David's City sung by a children's choir a cappella.  It was hauntingly beautiful, and I knew that I had to play it on dulcimer.  The tune itself is very simple, but it is a wonderful Christmas lullaby in the tradition of Away in a Manger.  It is especially lovely when quietly fingerpicked.
