This is a fresh, rhythmic arrangement of an all-time Christmas favorite. The style is set from the beginning with the malleted rhythm and the solo melody line appearing in the mid-range treble bells, segueing into a Rung section. The melody is then featured in the bass clef with accompanying TD accompaniment in the treble.  There are some LV passages which contrast with the stopped sounds and some echoes for additional flavor leading to the exciting ending which recaps the original rhythm. This is fully accessible for all Level 3 groups.
