Ballade (handbell solo)

BALLADE - Kevin McChesney - handbell solo with keyboard accompaniment

An original composition effectively adapted from an earlier guitar and recorder duet. Legato line and potential four-in-hand usage are some of the technical challenges. A fairly lengthy work, use in worship as an anthem - especially one which celebrates children.
