Description: This setting of three favorite Advent and Christmas songs - O Come, O Come, Emmanuel, Of the Father's Love Begotten, What Child is This? has been artfully arranged for two complete, 5 or 6-octave handbell choirs and has several options which will offer interesting performance choices. A director can opt for a processional, a bell tree and the singing bell technique. A keyboard can play one of the choir parts as written by simply omitting the top notes in a few measures. It is a lovely arrangement which is easily accessible for the level 3 ensemble.
The score contains all the music for both choirs and/or one choir and keyboard.
