Cynthia Dobrinski's new version of Adolph Adams' Christmas treasure, "O Holy Night," is satisfying for experienced ringers and accessible enough for less experienced choirs to ring with grandiose results. There are very few accidentals throughout and straight eight notes often replace the triplet figures. Also provided is a wonderful soaring flute (or violin) obbligato, which is optional.
