Easter and Lent Selections for Handbells.
A collection of arrangements and compositions for handbells by James Gilbert. These are for intermediate level groups.
Titles are: Crucifixus from Mass in B Minor (Bach) (3 Octaves with optional 5th octave bass notes)
Lenten Piece (5 Octaves)
Rejoicing (5 Octaves)
The Cross Medley (5 Octaves)
The Head That Once Was Crowned (5 Octaves).
These titles are suitable for an intermediate or advanced 5-octave choir.
Crucifixus sounds very good when played on handchimes with the simple modifications listed in the music.
Lenten Piece is a very reflective, almost new age piece in a minor key. If you listen very carefully you might be reminded of Kum Ba Yah (it's hidden in the piece).
Rejoicing is a dance-like piece with a Renaissance, modal feel.
The Cross Medley is a nice selection of titles that all have the word "cross" in their titles. Those include "Jesus Keep Me Near The Cross", "The Old Rugged Cross", "When I Survey The Wondrous Cross" and more.
