How Great Our Joy
"While by My Sheep" by Hugo Jungst and "Joy to the World" by George Handel are the two Christmas carols upon which this arrangement is based. The opening sixteen measures are marked "Exuberantly" and are fully scored. Things settle down to a more leisurely pace in measure seventeen with staccato, triplet-figure accompaniment and gently marted melody. Another section smooth things out with the LV technique. Ninety measures in length.
