Joel Raney captures the essence of Adolphe Adam's beloved Christmas classic in this awe-inspiring, pastoral arrangement for 3-5 octave handbells with optional 3-5 octave choir chimes. With hints of "Silent Night" woven into its fabric, Joel provides an extraordinary combination of these two tunes invoking the blessed night of our Savior's birth. The setting culminates in a powerful final verse featuring a stunning, malleted accompaniment. The optional inclusion of synthesizer, or strings, adds a beautiful underpinning to this level 3 setting. The separate Instrumental Parts contains a Conductor's Score and parts for Synth or Strings.
