Description: This wonderful work is based on an Irish carol originating from the County Wexford. Bits of two other carols – A Babe Is Born and Let All That Are to Mirth Inclined -- are also included. Derek Hakes has combined singing bell, suspended bells randomly rung, bar chime and more which creates a mystical feel. This is definitely one to add to your Christmas repertoire!
