Angels From the Realms of Glory
Percussive techniques, including mallets, martellatos, and plucks, combine with optional percussion (shaker, claves, and windchimes) in this arrangement of the hymn tune REGENT SQUARE to create rhythmic energy that will liven up any Christmas concert or worship service. The slow middle section, with optional handchimes, provides contrast before building to an exciting finale. With syncopations and several time signature changes, this will be a fun yet challenging piece for intermediate to advanced handbell choirs. This rendition is 128 measures and is scored in D Major.
