Meditation on Veni Emmanuel
Handchimes and malleted handbells provide color in this arrangement of the favorite Advent piece. At times it calls for using the mallet handle rather than the head. The music is in perpetual motion with eighth notes that build from a quiet start and then crescendo to a rich forte before ending softly. The composer offers special instructions for using this music as a bell sextet. It is scored in e minor and is 40 measures.
