Yet another annual Christmas carol utilizing the “gloria” text, Come Gladly, Come Gaily, Come Gather Together was composed as part of my Faith Partner’s residency for Huffman UMC in Birmingham, AL. The catalog description works for me: This musical setting with handbell chords and a carillon-like piano part in the high treble register paints a musical picture of the text. It’s fresh and new, yet “sounds” like the music we like to hear at Christmas. A fairly easy learn for the choir.
