Brethren, We Have Met To Worship (handbell quartet/ensemble with embellishments)
BRETHREN, WE HAVE MET TO WORSHIP - HOLY MANNA/arr. Kevin McChesney, embellishments by Luke Nabeta - handbell quartet/ensemble
A bright setting of the hymn favorite which depends a lot on rhythmic drive. Technical considerations include a running mallet line in the part of Ringer 4. Great opportunities using musical as well as physical expression are possible with repeated chords and an LV section which begs for stunning visual display.
The premiere handbell ensemble Forté offers this ornamented version for even more dazzle (original arrangement linked in Related Products below).
