There are three joyful carols, Hark! the Herald Angels Sing, Joy to the World, and Angels We Have Heard on High, in this arrangement. Each of the three harp parts is responsible for the melody of one of the carols, and portions of the melodies appear beautifully intertwined throughout the piece. There are minimal lever or pedal changes in all three parts. Performance time for Christmas Joy is about five minutes.
The arrangement comes with separate copies for First Harp, Second Harp, and Third Harp and an Ensemble Copy showing the three parts together.
