Hear the bells of Christmas peal forth as your choir resounds \"Sing Noel!\". Voices unfold the opening fanfare with great energy, dynamic swells, and crisp articulation. The piano accompaniment echoes the bell-like nature of the vocal parts. Moderate choral ranges, stepwise harmonic movement, and repeating rhythmic patterns make this accessible to choirs with the personnel to divide.
Performance options include use as an opening to worship or general anthem. You couild add handbells to the accompaniment, either with or in place of piano. This anthem is appropriate for Advent and Christmas.
