Flexibility is offered in this setting of the beloved Christmas carol by Franz Gruber: It may be rung as a stand-alone piece in its entirety. Stanza one (measures 1-23) may be used by itself for a brief setting without bell changes and may also be used to introduce choir or congregational singing in the standard key of Bb. Stanza one may also be used to accompany singers, repeating as needed, with stanza two (measures 24-50) providing an uplifting conclusion. If being used as choral accompaniment, an optional introduction is provided. Measures total 50.
