Luke 2:1-12, Matthew 2:1-12.

This Kevin McChesney setting is an uplifting arrangement reflecting the Easter text Now the Green Blade Riseth. The choral setting of the beloved French Carol, NOEL N OUVELET, includes both the words to the original Christmas carol, "Sing We Now of Christmas" and J.M.C. Crum's words for Easter. The handbell setting uses 3-5 octaves of bells and has driving rhythmic energy provided by the use of mallets. The Orchestral Parts consist of: Flutes, Oboes, Clarinets in B-flat, Bassoons, Horns in F, Trumpets in B-flat, Tombone, Tuba, Timpani, Percussion, Tubular Bells, Handbells, Violin I & II, Viola, Violoncello & Double Bass. The Band Orchestration consists of parts for: Flutes, Oboes, Clarinet in B-flat, Bass Clarinet in B-flat, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophones, Baritone Saxophone, Bassoons, Horns in F, Trumpets in B-flat, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba, Timpani, Percussion, Tubular Bells & Handbells.

    I played this piece with my high school handbell choir and it has been a favorite for 4 years. It takes an old favorite and adds speed as well as the articulation unique to handbells. Another phenominal McChesney arrangement.

    My church handbell choir played this exact piece two years ago to resounding praise. It is challenging, but extremely gratifying. Our Homeschool handbell choir won first place in state competition last year with this piece as well as best of show. It is truly an impressive rendition of a classic...

    Christmas song.
