Description: Sparkling, jubilant, and very merry, with toe tapping rhythms describes this splendid combination of two beloved carols – “Joy to the World” and “Angels from the Realms of Glory.” The piece may be performed with handbells alone but adding the optional percussion really adds to the celebratory atmosphere. As the title implies, it is truly a joyful Christmas celebration.
