Handbells (3-5 oct. w/opt. 3-5 oct. handchimes & instruments) - Level 3
Composed by James R. Murray. Arranged by Joel Raney. Christmas. Handbell part. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.2655).

Item Number: HP.2655


Combining handbells with optional handchimes, piano, strings and flute, Joel Raney has created the musical equivalent of viewing a nativity scene with childlike wonder. The soothing lullaby moves from Joel's signature ballad style to a section of whimsical playfulness by use of stopped sound. Incorporating both the familiar Murray tune along with Kirkpatrick's "Cradle Song," handbell choirs will find this musical presentation a charming addition to their Christmas program. Instrumental parts include Conductor's Score, Piano, Flute, 2 Violins & 2 Cellos (or Synth Strings).
