Handbells (3 octaves) / handbells (5 octaves) (with optional 3-5 octave handchimes) - Level 3+
Composed by Cathy Moklebust. Holy Week, Lent, Sacred. Handbell score. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGB584).

Item Number: LO.CGB584

Holy Week, Lent, Sacred.

Level 3+ - This dramatic original work is a musical interpretation of the text from Isaiah 53:4-5: "Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows. . .." A simple accompaniment of quarter-note chords lies under the plaintive yet lyrical melody, which grows and develops throughout the first section. The melody and the accompaniment become increasingly more complex and aggressive until reaching a dissonant, fortissimo climax, when random ringing with chimes delicately accompanies a return of the melody. Appropriate during Lent or whenever this scripture passage is used (RCL, Year B, Proper 24.).
