Description:
Untitled

O Leave Your Sheep is an old French carol sometimes called Quittez, Pasteurs. The carol text  reflects the shepherds' visitation by the angels as told in Luke 2:8-16, and the mostly-malleted bass line illustrates the urgency expressed in the lyrics, "O leave your sheep... your flocks...your village," to "hasten to adore."  Layers of texture and dynamics are reminiscent of Ravel's Bolero. If desired, two instruments may substitute for some of the handbell/handchime doubling, making the piece more accessible for ringers.

 

Voicing:  5, 6 or 7 octaves handbells with 3 octaves handchimes and optional 2 flutes (or other C instruments)      

   

Arranger:  Linda R. Lamb

 

Tune: Traditinoal French carol, Quittez, Pasteurs

 

Season:  Christmas

 

Level:  4 (Level 3 with optional instruments)
