This is a very straight-forward arrangement of this favorite piece from the opera literature. The use of chimes at the beginning and end lend a sacred and subdued tone, but bells in the more animated sections adds dramatic contrast. Rhythms are easy, but there are accidental shifts throughout. This piece is offered for 3 octave choirs (FL HB699), and 5 octave choirs (FL HB700) that are totally compatible. 56 measures in length, this piece is scored in C Major.
