Carillon (handbell solo+quartet/ensemble)

CARILLON - Kevin McChesney - handbell solo with quartet/ensemble or keyboard accompaniment

Solo line lends itself to solo bells (especially on handbell tree) or to an alternate C instrument. Accompaniment line may be played by bells on a duplicate set, chimes, or keyboard.

A splashy mixed meter elevates the difficulty of this original work, but it follows logical and repeated patterns and should prove very accessible.
