In "Irish Suite #1", Ann Habicht offers a variety of traditional Irish tunes accessible to handbell trios with 4-in-hand ringing, or add more ringers as needed to make these pieces come together quickly for your group! An "appendix" with just the melody for each piece is included at the end, so that you know what musical line to bring out throughout the arrangements.
