Zacchaeus composed by Sandra Eithun. For handbells (3-5 octaves). Sacred. Level 2. Handbell score. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGB499).
Lively mallets and thumb damps bring to life the delightful traditional children's song about Zacchaeus, the man who climbed up into the sycamore tree. No bell changes are required. Developing choirs will gain experience in playing stopped sounds as well as ringing a limited number of eighth notes. The middle section of the piece presents the tune in the form of a round before a rousing finish.
