Song Of The Manger

By Arnold B. Sherman

3-5 octave handbell choir with optional 3-5 octave handchimes - Level 2+
Arranged by Arnold B. Sherman. Christmas, Sacred. Handbell score. 8 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.2272).

Item Number: HP.2272

Arnold Sherman combines two familiar Christmas melodies in this gentle, flowing, ballad-style setting. It begins with a hint of the familiar Polish Carol ("Infant Holy, Infant Lowly"), then moves immediately into a presentation of "Away in a Manger," set here in a 4/4 meter. The combination is especially pleasing when the Polish Carol reappears in the bass line on the optional handchimes.

    Arnold Sherman combines "Away in The Manger," with the familiar Polish carol to create a peaceful, and flowing handbell arrangment. Having rung this piece at a festival a few years ago, this make a great choice for massed ringing and also for Christmas worship and concerts throughout the year. At...

    a Level 2+, this is not a difficult piece to ring but will require some sensitive ringing from choirs in order to bring out its true beauty. Chimes are optional but contribute so much to the arrangment.
