The Shepherds' Gloria composed by Roger Summers. For SATB choir (with optional 2-3 octave handbells). Sacred Anthem, Christmas. Octavo. Published by Exaltation Publications (LO.10-2830L).
This joyous rendition of the shepherd's encounter with the angelic host on the night of Jesus' birth practically sings itself. The captivating melody and solid scriptural text are united with the refrain from "Angels We Have Heard On High" to make this a worthy addition to any Christmas repertoire. One additional option is the inclusion of a sparkling handbell part (which includes permission to duplicate) that will unite ringers and singers in a glorious Christmas musical moment.
