Light of the World
This jubilant original work offers choirs the chance to showcase their talents, while also providing performance options for multiple choirs and musicians. The work can be performed solely by a three to five octave handbell choir, though parts are also available for an optional three to five octave handchime choir (or, where space or numbers don’t permit, a piano reduction of the handchime part), an easier, optional three octave second handbell choir (suitable for beginning ringers or children), and optional timpani and percussion. Driving rhythms and syncopation will keep ringers engaged, and the memorable melody will enchant ringers and audience members alike. 115 measures.
