Away In a Manger
The hauntingly beautiful English folk tune, “The Bold Grenadier,” breathes new life into the text of this familiar carol. The minor mode provides an enticing mood and the flowing piano accompaniment simulates the gentle rocking of the cradle. Four handbells may be played by one or two ringers, adding an ethereal accent. The reproducible handbell part (A5/F6; B5/G6) is included.
