It Came Upon the Midnight Clear

Review:      "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear" lyrics were written by Edmund Sears in 1849 and set to music in 1850 by Richard Storrs Willis. Phoebe Yeung has arranged this carol as a handbell quartet using singing bells and suspended mallets at the beginning to accentuate the silence of a starry night. In the middle of the piece, the melodic line is transferred from the bass ringer to the top ringer, with the other ringers using a 4-in-hand technique to play the accompaniment. The piece concludes like an echo that is fading, with suspended mallets to end the piece.
