Based on GLORIA. A usable setting of this favorite Christmas carol. This is a setting that stays close harmonically to what congregations are used to hearing. Solid brass writing and soaring descant at the end. Easy to learn. Useful for worship services or for festive Christmas services.
When brass is used, organ should play from the Full Score (60-1006). When performed without Brass, the organist should play from the Choral Score.
