CGB693 Away in a Manger (3, 4 or 5 octaves)
Music Sample: CGB693 Away in a Manger (3, 4 or 5 octaves)
Description:
Untitled

This work combines two of the best-known carol melodies associated with its title. It is delightfully simple enough for beginning choirs and also perfect for more advanced choirs to prepare at a moment's notice for Christmas services. A few eighth notes, along with some echo techniques to symbolize the rocking of a cradle, are the most difficult requirements. The two editions are compatible for massed ringing.

 

Voicing: Handbells; 3,4 or 5 octaves

 

Composer: William James Kirkpatrick, 1838-1921

 

Arranger: Valerie W. Stephenson

 

Level: 2-
