Children and the Shepherds, The
This original composition has been set for unison choir and SATB voices accompanied, with optional handbells. The bell part is simple, plays throughout the work with several tacet measures and would be an ideal way to involve beginning ringers in a larger work. The text begins Have you seen a star brightly shining in the distant sky? Have you heard a song gently rising through the winter night? The piece remains in the key of C major.
