Handbells (3-5 octaves) (with optional 3 octave handchimes) - Level 3
Composed by Cathy Moklebust. Sacred. Handbell score. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGB562).

Item Number: LO.CGB562

This varied arrangement of the hymntune DIX begins simply, with the melody in the treble bells, and the bass providing a flowing, LV eighth-note accompaniment. The handchimes play the second stanza in a slightly slower tempo, with the tune alternating between the upper and lower treble chimes. The piece's final portion takes on an almost Celtic feel with a lilting, dancing section in 6/8 time, including malleted bass bells and a variety of techniques in the treble, with an upbeat and joyous ending.
