An opening flutter of angel’s wings, and the traditional melody announces the angels. This energetic arrangement propels the excitement through the shepherds, the wise men, and finally the whole multitude. It sings easily and presents a thrilling Christmas anthem with simple variations on the beloved carol. The piano duet works well if you don’t have a full orchestra. Also available in SSAA and TTBB. An easy add with impressive sound.
