Processional on O Come All Ye Faithful
Two Bb trumpets (optional) open this Christmas setting with an 8-measure fanfare, which is then repeated in the bell score to form the processional pattern. This fanfare theme carries through in the mid-range bells as the melody soars in the upper treble. A "tender" section provides contrast as well as varying the tempo. Trumpet parts are included in the handbell folio. Measures total 78.
