Lo How A Rose
This accessible setting of the beloved carol is enhanced by rich harmonic treatment and the use of optional violin. Phrases of the carol melody are interspersed with original material that serve as interludes as well as the introduction. Handbells and handchimes alternate, with the chimes playing the introduction and interludes and the bells playing the carol melody. If desired, the handchime and handbell parts may be played antiphonally by two different choirs.
