Babe of Bethlehem, The
A chordal arrangement of a tune from the "Southern Harmony", this piece is great for the beginning 3-octave choir or for those needing something simple quickly. The texture is very sparse, often with only one bell ringing, and otherwise chordal. The only techniques used are LV and some swings at the end of the piece. Dynamic changes are few and easily prepared. Set in a minor, this piece works well for chimes or handbells. It is 98 measures.
