A Child is Born (1969)

A jazz standard written by Thad Jones (1923 - 1986) a trumpeter, composer and arranger. Born in Pontiac, Michigan, Thad played with many of the "greats," including Count Basie, Coleman Hawkins, Thelonious Monk, and many others. The sheet music is still available from your favorite music supplier.

I've taken a simplistic approach when adapting this to the Paramount. Starting and ending with a quasi music box. I also used the melody coupler for that 4' tibia on top of the left hand melody, along with vox, sax and dulciana at 16' and 8'. The gorgeous chords and melody speak for themselves.
