Tidings of Joy
In this Lloyd Larson arrangement that is perfect for church and school settings, "Ding Dong! Merrily on High" serves as the introduction. A change to minor mode and a more brisk tempo accompany the entrance of the familiar "Ukrainian Bell Carol," which serves at the accompaniment to "God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen." The merriment escalates through two ensuing key changes and final repeated acclamations of "Tidings of Joy!" Scored in A Major, e minor, and f minor, this setting is 86 measures.
