This is an easy setting in which the tune (lyrics: On Christmas Night all Christians sing) is backed by a campanilian accompaniment. An optional divisi appears in the soprano. Duration: 1:10

The Prince Consort performs on the recording.

An interesting 3-part carillon swing supports the melody and is lots of fun to play. It’s straight from the bell tower!
-- Glen Shannon
