Once In Royal David's City
The newest in the growing line of pieces for combined handbell and handchimes choirs, this is an arrangement of the tune IRBY, useable at any time during the Christmas season. The arrangement includes a brief introduction that also serves as an interlude and closing, and three different verse settings. Bell changes are minimal, and the chime part is easier than the bell part. With the gentle, relaxed tempo and feel, this piece is very accessible. Measures total 52.
