Review: Handbell arranger Kevin McChesney brings us Lorie Line's contemporary take on the famous chorus from Handel's “Messiah” in this setting for 3-7 octaves and keyboard. The result is a very accessible arrangement that would be at home in a variety of Christmas services. The piano part is at least of medium-medium/advanced level. Scored in F Major, it is 89 measures in length.
