Optional handchimes are scored to add dimension to Kevin McChesney's transcription of one of J.S. Bach's most beloved works. The tempo is unhurried, allowing ringers not to feel overly pressured by the plethora of 16th-note rhythms. The shake technique is scored to depict Bach's original "trill" ornamentation. The handchime part may also be played by a solo C instrument. Measures total 55.
