Joy to the World
A flashy, antiphonal fanfare between bells and organ sets up the entrance of this Handel/Mason favorite carol. The text is printed in the director's score to assist with the directing of congregational singing. One stanza is accompanied by handbells only followed by an interlude on the organ. An optional soprano descant adds excitement on the final stanza and brass and timpani spice things up throughout. Brass ensemble consists of 2 trumpets, Horn, Trombone, Tuba, Timpani.
