Morning Has Broken
The first in a new line of handbell solos with piano from Choristers Guild is the Gaelic tune BUNESSAN, that may be performed either on a bell tree or rung from the table. This solo is scored for only 12 bells, ranging from F5 through C7, and includes options for omitting notes that make it easier when playing from the table. This gentle, lyric arrangement is usable throughout the church year and is especially appropriate at the beginning of a service. The piano accompaniment is also available as an mp3 download. Key of Bb Major. 72 measures.
