Were You There
Reflective of the events of Holy Week, this quiet meditation on the traditional spiritual was initially arranged for solo piano by Joel Raney and adapted here for handbells with optional choir chimes by Arnold Sherman. The melody may also be played on B-flat clarinet, included in the score, which simply doubles the handchime melody presented in the inner voices. The reproducible clarinet part is included. A total of 55 measures, this piece is set in C Major and Ab Major.
