Item Number: LO.CGB595

Christmas, General, Sacred.

Level 1+ - This beloved, hauntingly beautiful piece is published in two compatible and accessible editions for handbells or handchimes. The piece contains solid block chords with few accidentals and makes use of easy bell techniques, such as LV, shake, and vibrato. It teaches dynamic contrasts, various simple tempo changes, and is a good piece to introduce voice-leading lines through balancing the melody against the continuous quarter-note pattern of the accompaniment.
