Perfect for church or concert, Angel Noels is a Christmas medley by Karen Buckwalter incorporating several carols (Joy to the World, Angels from the Realms of Glory, Angels We Have Heard on High and He Is Born). Originally conceived as a bell tree duet with piano, it has been adapted as a bell tree solo (3 octaves, C5-C7) with an optional second part for C instrument, a second bell tree (5 octaves, C7-C8) or small ensemble (8 bells C7 to C8, or 8 chimes C6 to C7.) No bell changes allow ringers to ring away from the table and distanced if ringing the optional second part as an ensemble. The availability of two mp3 accompaniment tracks adds to the flexibility. The piano and flute track allows the second part to be heard while ringing as a bell tree solo.
