Are twelve hands enough? Sometimes an extra ringer or director-turned-ringer is necessary. Such is the case with these two extended arrangements. "Holy, Holy, Holy" from Schubert's Deutsche Messe (A4-C7) and "Hallelujah" from Handel's Messiah (C5-D7). "Holy, Holy, Holy" requires that the melody be sung, played on a C instrument, or rung solo-ringing style on handchimes while the handbells provide the accompaniment. "Hallelujah" is challenging, but great fun to ring and to hear. Both pieces are suitable for both concert and worship.
