This is a gently lilting setting of some of the text from Tennyson's Ring Out, Wild Bells, set for 3-part upper voice choir
with piano accompaniment. The first three verses begin with staggered entry, building layers of simple harmony which should be in the
grasp of ages 8+. The final verse takes the idea from the beginning but plays it in the major key, reflecting the optimism of the
text and the peace that Christ brings.
Perfect for use as a short anthem for a new year for any school or church choir.
