The First NOEL

Mainly Piano_ICON.png

This intimate adaptation features melodic handbells floating above the harmonic swirls of the piano. Elegantly sparse orchestration frames the hypnotic rhythm and lulls the listener into a peaceful mood.

The work was created during Matt’s 30+ year career as Director of Music within the church world. He often composed or arranged for the handbell choirs he directed.
