If With All Your Hearts
This transcribed excerpt from Felix Mendelssohn's Elijah is 55 measures in length. A variety of performance options are available: 3 or 4 octaves of handbells with 3 or 4 octaves of handchimes. A sprinkling of techniques are added to the work for effect and there are a variety of textures from arpeggiated and block chords to staccato passages and shakes at ff. A challenge for musical interpretation awaits your choir with this selection.
