Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee
This duet was written as a processional, and would be appropriate for concerts or worship services. It uses 7 bells played 4-in-hand without needing any tables and requires beginning/intermediate 4-in-hand technique. There is no keyboard part, and the melody is passed between the two ringers. Starting off in 4/4 time, the piece transitions to 6/8 time and returns to the 4/4 time via a DC al Fine. This work is all-inclusive, so only one copy is needed for the two ringers. Measures total 38.
