Gloria He is Born
Two traditional French carols, Il est NÃ le Divin Enfant (18th century) and Ding Dong! Merrily on High (16th century) are combined in this setting for SATB choir and keyboard and optional bells. There are two bell parts available - one is included on the back page of the anthem and uses bells from Bb 4 to F6 (all written on the treble staff) and is a level II difficulty; the other is separate, is written for fuller chords with bells from F4 to F6 (all written on the treble staff) and is a level III difficulty. The bells ring a regular intervals throughout the work.
