How festive is the singing of this favorite carol at Christmastide! A brass quintet conveys the spirit of joyful angelic announcement, brass"bells" pealing, that Christ is born. After a beginning motivic journey through three tonalities, the middle brass lead out during the initial full stanza and refrain. Full brass introduce the last stanza and refrain, building toward a resounding gallop of melody and harmony, brass"bells" again pealing, and a richly joyous ending. Based on Antioch.
