Description:
Untitled

Beginning with a quiet treble ostinato figure inspired by the lyrics "in heaven the bells are ringing," the ringing grows in intensity until it bursts forth with the first statement of the traditional English carol, "Ding, Dong, Merrily on High." A second appearance of the heavenly bells is accompanied by chords using the echo technique. The carol is then combined with the 16th century Swedish tune "Tempus Adest Floridum" ("Gentle Mary Laid Her Child;" "Good King Wenceslas"). The heavenly bells ring one last time to conclude this joyful setting.

 

Voicing: 3, 4 or 5 octaves handbells

 

Arranger: Fred Gramann

 

Tune: "Tempus Adest Floridum," a traditional English carol
