Away in a Manger
Three familiar melodies are combined in this setting for 3, 4, or 5 octaves with optional 2-3 octaves of handchimes. A gentle introduction and verse is played on bells before the chimes enter on top with the melody. In another verse the chimes play the melody in the middle range while the upper bells provide an alternating accompaniment. The bells finish up the piece with an ending with fresh harmonies for this traditional tune. Set in the keys of Eb Major, F Major, and C Major, this piece is 98 measures.
