BLEST BE THE TIE THAT BINDS – arr. Kevin McChesney – handbell solo/duet with keyboard accompaniment
Musically straightforward, play as a solo or divide up the solo for two ringers making it easier to learn and less of a challenge. As a solo, some four-in-hand may be needed to make the runs smooth and musical. Legato ringing is a must; some LV might be included along with relaxed and natural movements.
Handbells used (and range)
Solo/duet: 13 bells (D5-B6)
