Glory to God in the Highest
This original composition based on a text from Luke 2 is part of the Allen Pote choral series. Scored for SATB voices, keyboard and optional brass, timpani and handbells (the brass/timpani parts and handbell score are available separately). The bells are active throughout most of the piece and play entirely in full chordal texture. The beginning of the work is chant-like as the story is told of the shepherds on the hill. The brass and timpani enter on the chorus that takes its' text from the angel chorus. Brass ensemble consists of 2 trumpets, 2 trombones, and Timpani.
