This Joyful Eastertide arranged by Jane McFadden. For handbell choir (3-5 octaves) with optional 3-4 octave handchimes. Easter, Sacred. Grade 2+. Handbell score. 8 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.2276).
Also known as the "Dutch Easter Hymn," this arrangement combines that delightful melody with strains of "Christ the Lord is Risen Today." Optional handchimes introduce the first melody, and then present the second in a more reflective treatment, alternating minor and major phrases. For the finale, VRUECHTEN reappears and builds to a triumphant "Alleluia" ending.
