Description

SA a cappella with 5 handbells. Mysterious, chantlike, and atmospheric -- the musical phrases are punctuated by cluster chords in the handbells.  A lovely setting of the famous text that's wonderful for Lessons & Carols.  It's also good for an Easter Vigil service!

Four thousand winter thought he not too long;
And all was for an apple, and apple that he took,
As clerkes finden written in their book.
Ne had the apple taken been, the apple taken been,
Ne had never Our Lady a been heavene Queen.
Blessed be the time that apple taken was:
Therfore we moun singen: Deo Gratias.
