Gesu Bambino by Pietro A. Yon (1886-1943). Arranged by Sharon Rogers. For handbell choir (3-5 octaves) with optional 3 octave handchimes. Christmas, Sacred. Grade 2+. Handbell score. 8 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.2371).
This hauntingly beautiful tune, by Pietro A. Yon, is a standard Christmas holiday classic the world over. The "chorus" part of this setting features a clever juxtaposition of two tunes with the handbells ringing the original melody and the optional 3 octave handchimes ringing "O Come All Ye Faithful.".
