Away in a Manger arranged by Susan Nelson. For SATB choir with optional handbell solo or bell tree (handbells (opt. 4-in-hand): a5/f6, b5/g6). The Susan T. Nelson Choral Series. Christmas, Sacred. Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.C5770).
The hauntingly beautiful English folk tune, "The Bold Grenadier," breathes new life into the text of this familiar carol. The minor mode provides an enticing mood and the flowing piano accompaniment simulates the gentle rocking of the cradle. Four handbells may be played by one or two ringers, adding an ethereal accent. The reproducible Bell Part (A5/F6; B5/G6) is included.
