The First Nowell is an old English carol that was rediscovered and collected in the late 1800's, and has continued to be a favorite Christmas carol in England and North America. This arrangement for 19 bells from a standard two octave bell set can be played by hand bells, hand chimes or tone chimes. This arrangement is quite dense, with melodies set both in the upper and lower octaves, so players must have a good sense of dynamic control to bring out the melody line. At a little over two and a half minutes, it is both a fine performance piece, and a good, familiar choice for a worship setting. .
