Nativity Medley


Various, arr. Dare, Carol, Dare Team Press

This medley for six ringers (B4–F6) contains four familiar carols: "It Came upon the Midnight Clear", "O Little Town of Bethlehem", "What Child Is This" and "Silent Night". Although the score calls for both bells and chimes, it can be played with only one tone color. Short bridges between carols make this medley flow smoothly; however, any carol in the medley may be rung as a single piece. Directions are included for using the transitional measures as an introduction to single carol.
