"I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" and "Carol of the Bells" are teamed up in this fresh setting of two Christmas songs about bells.
The seasonal favorites "Adeste Fidelis", "Infant Holy", "Silent Night", and "Jingle Bells" are each one-page, repeatable versions, and may be used as incidental music, or combined as a suite.
This setting of an old English melody would make a great opening selection for your Christmas program. Short and fun, it is sometimes like a game of "hide-and-seek", allowing the listener to reminisce about childhood.
This setting of the French carol is alternately thick and thin in texture and counterpoint.
"O Holy Night", originally written in French and titled "Cantique de Noel", is a well-known Christmas carol composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847. This setting is for two or three octave handbell choir and is abbreviated to make it more accessible and performable by smaller groups.
