The stirring Beethoven "Ode to Joy" has been set for various mediums. It is with rhythmic vitality, well thought out harmonic changes and effective use of bell techniques that Michael Keller offers this setting of the tune "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee" for English handbells. The arrangement is workable as a 3-5 octave bells only selection or can be performed with keyboard, brass, solo trumpet, or a combination of these.
