Two Short Classical Pieces
Playable on either handbells or handchimes, this set of two short classical arrangements will be useful in worship, school and concert settings. Christopher Gluck’s lovely Minuet (Arioso) is a well-known lyrical piece with a haunting melody. Carl Bohm’s charming but lesser known Praeludium (Reflection) will keep ringers happily engaged. Attention to phrasing and dynamics will enhance the musicality of both pieces. The Minuet is 42 measures in the key of G Major; Praeludium is 36 measures in the key of c minor.
