Love Came Down at Christmas
These sweet Christmas lyrics appear in 61 hymnals – and have been popular since the poem was first written in 1885 by Christina Georgina Rossetti. The poem has been set to several different tunes over the years; this one is based on a Traditional Irish Melody. Will has created a sweet, gentle version to be rung on three bell trees! It is lovely and filled with expression. If you do not have three bell trees available, it could be split up among more ringers, each holding a string of bells, and will work beautifully for ‘spatial ringing'. 67 measures in the key of C Major.
Note: A copy is needed for each ringer.
