Ave Verum Corpus (2 octaves handbells)

AVE VERUM CORPUS - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart/arr. Scott Pfitzinger - 2 octaves handbells with 3-5 octaves handchimes (or 3-5 octaves handbells) - Level III

This simple and reverent Eucharistic hymn by Mozart, originally for SATB choir, strings, and organ, is designed to allow the melody to shine on bells while the accompaniment is played on chimes. However, it can be played on all bells or chimes if desired. While particularly effective in a worship service or mass, this piece can also add a touch of simple elegance and reverence to a concert.

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.

Barcarolle (handbell duet)

BARCAROLLE - Jacques Offenbach/arr. Beth Davidson - handbell duet with keyboard accompaniment

A "barcarolle" is a song sung by Venetian gondoliers. You can hear the sway of the gondola in the gentle rhythm and light classical flavor of this piece. The work makes a brilliant handbell duet with keyboard accompaniment. The parts are even in difficulty and well-thought-out, and the partnership between bells and keyboard is lovely.

$10.00
