Benediction (handbell solo/duet/trio/quartet)
BENEDICTION - John Newton/arr. Kevin McChesney - handbell solo/duet/trio/quartet with keyboard accompaniment
John Newton's hymn tune set by Kevin McChesney for soloist and trio with full accompaniment. Common uses in weddings, memorial services, blessings, and (as the title says) benedictions. Subtitled "May the Grace of Christ Our Savior" as per the words in the hymn, this title could be easily substituted when appropriate.
This arrangement gives many options; the accompaniment makes this a flexible work for soloist, duet, trio or quartet. There are many opportunities for ensembles to work on smooth ringing style, matching strokes, relaxed phrasing - making the music speak.
