Ash Grove (handbell solo)
ASH GROVE, arranged by Ann Habicht for Handbell Solo with Piano
This arrangement takes the listener to a restful, meditative place. Often, this great hymn of thanksgiving is treated in excited bursts and with driving energy, but here the listener can reflect on gratitude in a serene and profound musical setting. Simple and direct of speech, it is straightforward to learn and allows ringer and keyboardist to be at their most expressive.
