Handbells (2-3 octaves) - Level 2
Composed by John Ness Beck. Arranged by Douglas E. Wagner. Christmas, Sacred. Handbell score. Lorenz Publishing Company #20/1447L. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.20-1447L).
This arrangement, adapted from a well-known Christmas choral standard (code number: S177), rings idiomatically as a natural for bells or chimes. Gently moving eighth notes carry the tune in chorale prelude-like fashion. Especially lovely when rung with handchimes.
