"Down in the town of Bethlehem, into a world full of woe, Jesus the Savior, He came to earth, though it was long time ago." So begins the classic anthem by Natalie Sleeth, first published in 1979. Now there is an SATB and SAB setting with a new 3 to 6-octave handbell accompaniment by Martha Lynn Thompson. Every ringer is kept involved in the up-beat textures filled with fun rhythms and lots of special techniques. Use MHPC5143HB to accompany both choral anthems (copyright date on MHPA508 is 1979).
