Valerie W. Stephenson - Choristers Guild
This lively arrangement of the familiar carol is entirely malleted with the exception of two shakes. It includes teaching elements for chromatics on the table that are more easily learned than with straight ringing. The opening bass line gets the piece off to a fabulous start with lots of mallet rolls on sustained notes. Some stick clicking can also be inserted for visual interest and variety. A truly high energy piece that is sure to be a favorite!
