This Joyful Eastertide
Linda Shute arranged this 17th century, Dutch tune, Vruechten, as a procession for children, adults, handbells and percussion. The bell part is made up entirely of half notes in a unison line and can be easily memorized. A wonderful way to involve very beginning ringers in a collective worship experience. The work is only fifty-four measures in length in 2/4 time.
