This lyrical and beautiful song was written by Joe Mattingly, who is well-known for his many choral compositions. Kurt has created this gorgeous setting which is true to the original, yet perfectly arranged for handbells. It begins featuring suspended bells interweaving Silent Night with Christmas Lullaby supported by singing bells. The lyrical melody, LV passages, and handchimes all emphasize the sensitive expression throughout.
